Tenants in Battle with Slum Landlord
NEW YORK (JTA) — A slum
landlord was forced to make badly
needed repairs in his tenement in
Brooklyn by its mostly Puerto
Rican residents after they were
organized into an active tenants
association through the efforts of
a Maimonides Medical Center com-
munity psychiatry team.
Their rents are currently being
held in escrow to force the land-
lord to complete needed repairs in
The effort was described by med-
ical center officials as a rather
unique example of the community
psychiatry services provided to
residents of the area by the medi-
cal center's community health
center. The effort for the tenement
families was undertaken in line
with the chief goals of the program
to protect both the physical health
and self-esteem of area resident.
The dramatic effort toward or-
ganized self-help began when a
team of Maimonides mental health
workers acted on a complaint filed
by 19 families in the building that
they had been living without heat
for two of the coldest weeks of the
winter because of a defective
The tenement conditions were
called to the attention of Gerald
Beallor, a Maimonides psychia-
tric social worker, when one of
his patients cancelled an appoint-
ment because she feared her
_ apartment was too cold for him
After hearing the report, a Com-
munity Mental Health Center team
headed by Sam Neuschatz, coor-
dinator of Maimonides community
organization programs, arranged
a meeting with families in the
The meeting led to formation of
a tenants committee and the start
of an organized effort to compel

the landlord to repair the chimney
and to remedy other long-standing
complaints, including leaky faucets,
loose plaster, broken fixtures and
delays in painting.
Members of the Community
Mental Health Center team took to
the telephone and bombarded the
landlord and building and housing
officials with complaints. Within a
few days, the landlord arranged to
repair the broken chimney and
heat was restored to the chilled
residents. After two visits by a
city building department inspector,
the landlord also replaced defec-
tive bathtubs, fixed holes and had
some plastering done. Rents were
reduced by 50 per cent.
When the tenants were served
with dispossess notices by the
landlord, a VISTA attorney gave
them legal help at a court hearing
where the judge declared in favor
of the tenants but also ruled that
full rents had to be paid. The rents
are being held in escrow, pending
a court determination that the
landlord has completed all repair
work needed, in a manner satis-
factory to the court.
