Slum property designations could go after scofflaw landlords in Glendale

By Mike Sunnucks | Rose Law Group Reporter

The Glendale City Council is looking at a new “slum property” ordinance aimed at cracking down on landlords with apartments and other properties with deteriorating, dirty or hazardous conditions.

The new ordinance would give the city more legal teeth to go after scofflaw landlords in court and slum property designations would impact property values and owners’ reputations.

The council is being presented a draft ordinance from staff at a meeting today (Sept. 14).

A slum property designation could be given to apartments and other properties with unsafe conditions including “structurally unsound exterior surfaces, roof, doors, floors, stairwells, porches or railings; lack of potable water, adequate sanitation facilities, adequate water or waste pipe connections; hazardous electrical systems or gas connections; Lack of safe, rapid egress; Accumulation of human or animal waste, medical or biological waste, gaseous or combustible materials, dangerous or corrosive liquids, flammable or explosive materials or drug paraphernalia” according to council documents.
