Help Coming for Modesto Tenants in Blighted Building; Landlord Could Face Legal Fight

Help may be on the way for the 80 poor people being evicted from a downtown apartment building Modesto is condemning.

Social service agencies will meet this week with the tenants, and a Bay Area attorney says he expects to sue the landlord on behalf of the tenants. Modesto has declared the two-story building of 27 studio apartments unfit and unsafe for occupancy.

Merced Apartment Building Condemned. Landlord Says 'This Place Is Not the Best'

Two apartment buildings condemned by the city of Merced left 32 people on the street this week, according to advocates.

In the displaced group were children, seniors and adults, including two pregnant women, advocates said.
