CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A receiver has been appointed to take over five nuisance properties in Cincinnati. Hamilton County Judge Beth Myers appointed Milhaus Properties to oversee the five apartment complexes on Monday, Feb. 1.
They include Alms Hill, En-Towne Manor, Shelton Gardens, and Reids Valley View Apartments. These are managed by PF Holdings LLC, landlords out of New Jersey.
Judge Myers took control away last week from the properties' landlords on Friday. More than a thousand residents in five buildings located in Avondale, Walnut Hills, and Westwood say they need rehab and repairs to their residences, and they need it fast. Documents in the case say more than $1 million in repairs and security measures are needed.
Milhaus will receive the rent and manage the properties. The court-appointed manager will report to the court to make sure improvements are being made.
The Homeless Coalition says the structures had 1,800 building code violations. They include the apartments on Burton Avenue, where there was a roof collapse. Other buildings have been without heat and security measures. The Homeless Coalition says 600 households have been affected over the past two years.
