I was born and raised in Watertown NY and have choose to stay here for 30 years… I am a disabled women living on a limited income who is on housing assitence… I have lived at Basin View Apartment on St. Rt. 3 in Watertown for the past 4 years… Last year Scalisi & Bernazzani Financial Services, LLC from San Francisco CA bought Basin View and they are money hungry… Back in Aug.
they desided to evict 4 families that have housingassistence… When we spoke up and they realized we weren’t going to leave our homes without a fight, their manager slowly got everyone out but, 3 families who have yet to find an apartment that we can afford… We are on housing because we are poor however, when on housing assistence we are only concitered month to month tenants even with a lease… A landlord can make us leave at any time with no reason…
Now how it that right, well Mr. and Mrs. Scalisi have taken full advatage of this… Telling us that there was a water problem (that we told them about) that had to be fix and the water would have to be shut off to the property… Since then they have rented out 3 apartment to new tenants,
charging them $300.00 more a month in rent even though this water problem has not been fixed and won’t be untill at least next spring… I called about a leak in my hot water heater and was told my their maintance person that, I would have to deal with it till I was out because he wasn’t going to fix it… What kind of people, would put people out on the street and then sue them for the rent they didn’t get because they didn’t was to deal with housing???
