The letter from Everett Code Enforcement confirms what former tenants always knew.
Rents are skyrocketing in Everett, but sometimes the money tenants pay isn’t being spent making buildings safer. Some landlords are hiring unlicensed workers to install electrical wiring and plumbing. Some landlords are ignoring building codes and conducting major work without any permits or inspections.
We believe that ALL tenants in Everett should live in housing that is structurally sound and safe for habitation.
Would you believe that the apartment building featured in the photos above is currently fetching $1300 a month for a studio apartment? And that they demand you sign a year-long lease? Some tenants are waking up to no hot water. And coming home to stovetops that don’t work. Or have sinks and tubs that won’t drain. Everett tenants deserve better, especially when prices keep going up. Help us help Everett tenants. Together, we can make renting in Everett safer for all!
