1016 w Kirkwood is unsafe. It is for sale and has been abandoned for over a year. It has no locking door on the back but rather a broken single pane storm door held by a concrete brick. Inside there the house is dangerous to enter. There is standing water in the basement that has been there for over a year. It is growing mold and mosquitoes. The walls are down to the studs. There are holes in the floors and ceilings. We have have had to call the police due to intoxicated individuals entering at night. I am afraid someone will get hurt or die by falling into one of the holes or the standing water directly across from the back door.

1723 W Gray St, Bloomington, In 47404 This house has set vacant for almost 20 years, you can smell the mold and rot from a distance. We live very close to this house and see animals climb in and out of the chimney, the inside of this house is completely filled with mold, the floors are totally rotted. It's a major eyesore on our street, and has a major negative impact on our home values. Sometimes people break into it and it harbors questionable characters especially for a building that isn't livable, has no water or plumbing, etc. I'm afraid my kids one day will try to explore it since it's not locked, and they get hurt inside (I've explicitly told them to stay away from this building). Nothing on this property is maintained and since living one house down from this place, we have never once seen anyone come to mow, maintain, clean, etc. this property. We notice a lot of mosquitoes from this property and it worries us with new diseases developing with mosquitoes, this puts our neighborhoods kids and people in general at risk. I would highly recommend this get condemned. It's within City Limits.

I am writing to report water leaking lead to flooding, mold and mushroom in the Unit 131, 1150 S. Clarizz Blvd., the Monroe. We had water flooding in living room, bathroom, and kitchen since we moved in around 17 August. We reported it. The maintenance came a few time to dry the floor in the first two weeks. The third week, mold and mushroom grew out in the bathroom, living room and kitchen. During that time, HAND happened to inspect the Monroe. The Monroe painted all the molded places and changed the broken air-condiner. But after passing HAND's inspection, they didnot try to fix the root cause of the water leaking and mold. Now, new mold is coming out in my bedroom. So, we believe they only used paint to cover the mold come out. But didnot treat the mold in the war and under the floor. Last time, they treated the mold with big fan which blew the contaminated air from air-conditioner room into the living room and our bed rooms. I got burning nose and lung. I was diagnosed with Rhinitis. Doctor said it is bad for the lung if I am continue to expose to that environment. I have been complaining about the bad ventilation and mold in my room which cause me difficulties of breath and coughing to the Monroe. But they have been very irresponsible. Also there were mold in the air-condioner room and ventilation system. The air blow out from the vent blacked my walls too.

This horrible rental company had water flowing out of their house for at least a week. Busted pipes, and they don't take care of their properties. There's already been a bunch of cases of mold in their rentals. I bet you anything these subhumas are going to still try to rent this shithole to some rentals they know they can easily take advantage of.

The owner of 1413 w 11th st has established a series of about 7 five gallon plastic buckets up against his house that are holding stagnant water. This will breed mosquitos and is unsafe to the neighborhood as it will contribute to the spread of disease including the potential for zika. Please have the owner remedy the situation.

A few months ago, my 5yr old son and I moved into a house located at 620 West 15th Street in Bloomington, Indiana. The landlord Michael Stone stayed he was in the process of remodeling and investing in the House. It has been apprx four months now and the trash and other hazardous gas/propane has been growing more and more outside the house, behind the house, and along side of the garage {which not only making the house look filthy but also has brought all kinds of bugs inside and out of the house and HUGE living critters such as possums, raccoons, and mice living right under our deck that wraps around a majority of the house. These critters are not only HUGE in size but they also fight with my outdoor cats and are fearless of humans and scare my company and children. I have brought the critters and the bug problem to my landlords attention on numerous times and he is very aware of such issues but refuses to do anything other than continue to add to thee trash and thee rubbish outside of the house. Further more, I have just recently moved into the basement part of the house where the landlord had converted it into a two bedroom/one half bath for more space for me and my children. When I moved down to the basement, the landlord claimed he was in the process of laying carpet down and adding a drop ceiling, however I did not realize how bad of shape the basement truly was in when me and my kids moved from the upstairs bedroom to the basement "apartment". I have been renting in the basement part of the house now for appxly three months now and the landlord has not fixed anything as he stated he would when I moved down there. {example: the whole furnace and water heater is exposed with wires of all sort and kinds, there are several different outlets, wires, pipes, and vents that are outdated and exposed with no covers or any type of coated insulation. Only part of the basement has a drop ceiling that covers small portions of wires, pipes, and light fixtures {most of which area is falling in and a portion of the drop ceiling has actually fallen in on top of my five yr old son } I have brought all of these violations and improper safety issues to the landlord on numerous times since moving in and the landlord continues to ignore any/all of the issues and concerns I have brought to his attention. I wish I could find another place to live but I am disabled and have a very limited income and can not find anything in our price range at the current moment. In December, things were really tight with the Holidays and all and I had to go to thee Trustees office for rental assistance that month; Although, I received a letter from the Trustees office stating they could not help me due to a number or reasons concerning the Landlord and something to do with the HANDS inspection people. I spoke with my landlord in person and showed him thee Letter from the Trustees office and I wanted an explanation and if the landlord had any knowledge of why the Trustees office stated the written reasons why they could not assist with this particular location.. At first, the landlord denied any wrong doing and then he finally admitted to me and my father that he was NOT a licensed Landlord and HANDS (code enforcement or whoever inspects rentals) did NOT in fact, inspect the basement in which he has been renting out to me. The Landlord also stated to me and my father that the upstairs rooms that he has been renting out was supposedly approved by HANDS as only a "one family" house and only adults were approved to live up there (yet he had my kids and I living in one room for a few months before moving us down to the basement) According to the landlord, supposedly only one family house to be rented out only consist of three adults. The landlord was renting out to Me, my kids, and another room mate; all at the same time that the landlord, his girlfriend, and the girlfriends' two children were also using the same bathroom, shower, kitchen, laundry washer/dryer, and the entire house at the same time that the landlord was also renting the upstairs and basement out. NOTE: I have pictures, videos, written complaints, and the landlords' verbal acknowledgment recorded of his scandal and neglectful ways with this house he has been renting out. I am hoping to find a new place to live soon but in the mean time, these are just a few things that this slum lord has done and continuous to do.
