Credit blacklisting

On Tenant Blacklist, Errors and Renters with Little Recourse

After two years of being homeless, napping in stores open all night and more recently staying in a convent in Harlem, Margot Miller found out in March that her luck was about to change: She had qualified for an apartment for low-income older adults.

“This is to inform you that a rental unit has become available,” the letter from the building’s owner, Prince Hall Plaza, began.

Elated, Ms. Miller, 68, said she immediately went to the building’s office to claim the apartment. But after a background check, she said, the building reversed course.


ive been blacklisted as ive moved three times and each lanlord calls the other as i obey the law and report my former address and landlord on each rental apllication and i find myself being abused and harassed by all them this is my third time and this new ladlord overcharged me rent despie him knowing what section eight said and s8 did nothing about it and he overcharged by 120.00 and now im filing a complaint with rso about it because its rso property but ive had to lock all food cabintes and replace all my radios from damage and lock my bedroom door to keep my food and property intact.


I moved into the complex four years ago, after receiving a Housing Choice Voucher. The apartment was not painted nor was the carpet cleaned. However, the complex was friendly. Last year, the on-site manager, who had managed the complex for 15 years, was suddenly replaced by a property management company. We immediately began getting notices on our doors warning us of fines for littering, loitering and other rule infractions. I also received a notice saying I owed $15 for rent. I asked for and received a print out of the ledger and racked my brain trying to figure out how I owed $15.

2 years back, I use to live in am apartment called Waterford Apartment. When we gave them noticed of moving out due to contract ends and the choice we had was month to month. My last payment was a cashiers check with the amount of $ 1399. This month I was looking for a place to live and the credit shows we owed the apartment that's causing us to not qualified. So I called the collection and discuss to them the matter and I ask for the ledger from the time I lived there.

Terminating my tenancy for no reason after 10 years of paying my rent on time at a senior apartment. Not returning my phone calls and direct manager says it is out of her hands. Causing stress and chest pains and a complete hardship to move. They say I have no rights but this is a federally subsidized facility.
