6 weeks without water at 1083 Main St E. ACORN calls for stronger tenant protections!
Posted February 10, 2023
1083 Main St E tenants have been without water since December 28th.
1083 Main has a long history of neglectful landlords. Between the previous owner Malleum and the current owner 1083 Main St Inc (Dylan Suitor) the 60 unit building is down to 7 occupied units.
Through buyouts, N13s and deliberate building neglect, the apartment building has sat mostly vacant for the past two years while Hamilton experiences a housing crisis.
Since 1083 Main St Inc. took over ownership in June 2021 they have neglected to maintain and clean common areas and exterior of the building, closed off access to the parking garage and laundry room.
The tenants have a hearing in March at the LTB regarding the landlord’s N13 applications.
The landlord has attempted to use the situation as an opportunity to force tenants to move out before the hearing.
The state of 1083 Main St E was totally preventable if property standards were strongly enforced in Hamilton.
ACORN is calling on the city to protect tenants from substandard housing conditions and tenant displacement.
