Healthy Homes - Habitation saine

 
 
Every person deserves affordable, livable housing. In many low income neighbourhoods, tenants live with mold, pests, broken elevators, and other challenges because landlords will not do the repairs needed. ACORN Canada members fight for landlord licensing, building inspections, and stronger enforcement of maintenance rules and by-laws.

News1130: Concerns over eviction notices at Surrey complex

Controversy is brewing at another property owned by a notorious Metro Vancouver landlord.

A low-income advocacy group is calling for more protection of tenants, in light of what’s happening at a Surrey complex.

ACORN Canada is objecting to eviction notices the group says have been served to everyone at Kwantlen Park Manor, a 31-unit apartment at 106th Avenue near 130th Street in North Surrey. It’s a building linked to the Sahota family, which is behind a number of other buildings that have had problems.

Infamous Sahota clan issues mass eviction orders to all tenants of long disputed Surrey apartment building.

SurreyOver the Easter long weekend ACORN Canada has learned that all residents of Kwantlen Park Manor, a 31 unit apartment located at 12975 106th Ave in Surrey, have been served with eviction notices due to the health and safety risks posed by the ongoing mould and structural issues present in the building.
