I appaert Seeks Ban
On 'Delaying Tactics'
At State, City Level
Ann Arbor City Councilman Le-
Roy Cappaert (D-Fifth Ward) is
urging passage of new state or
local laws favoring tenants rights.
In a recent communication to
City Council Cappaert suggested
that new laws are needed to pre-
vent landlords from using "delay-
ing tactics" to avoid complying
with existing housing standards.
"Something is seriously wrong,"
Cappaert's communication stated,
"when a single landlord or com-
binations of landlords can manipu-
late and delay action on homes
that are unfit for human habita-
tion. Such landlords risk the lives
of tenants in order to make
money; they require of building
inspectors, city attorneys, admin-
istrative officials and many others
hours and hour of costly work with
their delaying tactics."
Two Methods
Cappaert suggested two methods
of protecting tenants:
-Landlords might be required
to file affidavits of reasonable
compliance with the housing code
as aprerequisite to bringing an
action of eviction or to collect
-A landlord's willful mainten-
