Dimension Properties missed deadline with Everett code enforcement!!!
Slumlord costing tenants $250 each and messing up their utility bills
For the second day, Dimension Properties locks out PUD from being able to read tenants meters, placing each tenant in danger of a $250 fine, and having their electricity bill based on prior usage. Dimension needs to stop being such a selfish slumlord and start taking their tenants safety and concerns into consideration.
Dimension Properties locks out PUD. Places tenants in danger of $250 fine each!
WA Residents: What to do if your rental needs repair
Tenants are rightly concerned
Dimension Properties ignoring complaints that front and rear doors cannot lock
When concerned tenants complained to Dimension Properties their concerns were ignored. Their maintenance requests canceled!
Instead of seeing the danger of having front and rear entrance doors that cannot be secured, Dimension contractors decided to completely ignore the glaring safety and code issues, and instead spent their energy installing a cheap, plywood overhang over the main door, (that cannot be locked) to replace the solid ornamented metal one that provided covering for generations.
Some tenants inside have resorted to getting apartment cams, and others are reportedly sleeping with chairs wedged up against their apartment doors.
It remains to be seen if the work to build an overhang over the front door was done with the necessary permits. What is clear to all is that Dimension Properties apparently doesn’t value their tenants safety.
Dimension Townhouses Issued a Letter to Comply
The letter from Everett Code Enforcement confirms what former tenants always knew.
Demand Truth in Advertising!
Look at the pictures below. Would you believe that this Everett apartment building advertises in some online ads that it has disabled accessibility? It also claims to have a security system, and fast broadband. None of this is true. New tenants are being locked into a year-long lease only to find out that they have been deceived by a company that wanted to fill up the building as quickly as possible.
Everett Tenants Union believes that slumlords who lie should be held legally and publicly accountable. We are going to fight for stronger regulations and higher fines for those who falsely advertise to deceive potential tenants. We are also going to fight to allow deceived tenants to void their year-long leases if they feel that they were deceived when renting.
We need your help to do this. Simply spread the word about us. Tell your friends. Get involved at our website. Help us bring safer standards of living to Everett tenants. And make slumlords pay.
Not only is this landlord lying about having high speed internet and disability access, but the lies keep getting bigger and bigger. Now, the landlord is claiming that the apartments have “in unit” laundry. This is simply not true. As are the claims of having garage parking for most of the units. False! The units are rental units that cannot fit most vehicles. There are five of them. The advertisement claims this amenity is listed on the majority of units. Another untruth. There are approx. fourteen apartment units, and only paid parking for five. Potential tenants are going to be misled by the ads claiming in unit laundry, garage parking, high speed internet, and disability access.
The lies need to stop! And landlords who deceive people need to be punished.
