Los Angeles County

The plumbing in this 20-unit single-occupancy residence was so grim that raw sewage seeped into the ground underneath with no proper drainage. CRG performed an emergency tenant relocation and provided 1st and last months’ rent to the former occupants while a non-profit was hired to assist with the move. Plans to turn the building into student housing for nearby Whittier College remains thwarted thanks to two bankruptcies and five appeals from the owner. On a brighter note, since the building was boarded up, calls for police service in the area have dropped 80%.
