False statements have been made by the previous anonymous posters regarding the situation at 1035 W12th Ave. The statements that allege the uttering of threats, use of abusive profane language, threats of eviction, use of violence and assault with a weapon by the landlord are false. These false statements are libellous and were made by a disgruntled previous tenant with the deliberate intent of doing harm to the reputation and well-being of the landlord and the current residents of the building

in question.

In early May of the current year we received reports of a homeless man loitering on the landing of the stairwell between the second and third floors of the building. Shortly thereafter, an infestation of bedbugs was discovered on the the landing of the stairwell. This infestation was quickly dealt with and a thorough steam cleaning of the stairwell, hallways and main floor foyer was done.

Approximately two weeks later the tenants of both unit #6 and unit #7 on the third floor reported sightings of bedbugs within their suites. Photo evidence was provided to us on May 21st, video evidence on May 25th, and a sample of living bedbugs was captured and provided to us on June 8th. A professional exterminator was hired by the tenant in #6 and this was not communicated to the landlord. Unit #7, the carpeted common areas of the building, and the stairwell were heat treated and steam cleaned by the landlord on the same day.

Unit #6 was sprayed without the prior knowledge of the landlord as the landlord had arranged to undertake a heat treatment and follow-up steam cleaning of the affected units and common areas of the building throughout the months of June, July and August. The tenant in unit #6 refused to allow the landlord into his unit saying that the unit had already been treated with a pesticide.

At the end of June, the tenant of unit #6 gave notice to move citing bedbugs as the main reason, along with dissatisfaction with the landlord's response. The prior posts were made in early August and appear to be made by this disgruntled former tenant in order to impair the landlord's future income, despite the fact that the former tenant's damage deposit was fully refunded.

Currently, traps have been placed in the areas that were treated for bedbugs in an effort to monitor the situation. So far, no further reports of bedbugs have occurred, however, steam cleaning and heat treatment is still ongoing in the building.

DO NOT -- REPEAT -- DO NOT RENT HERE!!!! Then entire building is crawling with bedbugs everywhere. The landlord is super cheap and refuses to even the most basic of repairs!!! We offered to pay for our own pest control remediation and when they showed up the landlord violently refused to allow them to enter the building and then he proceded to attack us with a hammer!!! Stay away from this total shit hole!!!!

Landlord has threatened tenants with eviction and committed acts of physical violence -- even though there is a moratorium on evictions due to the current pandemic.

Bedbugs all over the building!
It’s disturbing! And the landlord refuses to do anything!
