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.

The entrance to a multi-level, Everett apartment building that advertised it was disability accessible. Does this look disability accessible?
The rear entrance. Does this look disability accessible? Why are the landlords advertising that it is?
The property has neither disability access, nor high speed internet.

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.

Lies. Lies. Lies.
