Tenants Remain Vulnerable to Predatory Landlords
A tenant getting tased and forcefully removed. Landlords changing card readers and locking people out of their apartments. A coronavirus patient sitting in her room, terrified of being thrown out because property managers will not let her come into the office to pay.
These are just some of the stories Christopher Storke, an attorney at the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, has encountered. “I’ve just been inundated with weekly rental phone calls. One particular property manager throughout Las Vegas is still serving seven days, pay rent or quit,” Storke said.
