ST. LOUIS — Residents and property owners are suing the owner of a property on Sidney Street, citing alleged breach of duty in failing to maintain the property that resulted to a public nuisance.
Erik M. Lintvedt, Steffanie Marcus, Heim@ LLC and APS Real Estate Services LLC filed a complaint in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against St. Louis Redevelopment Co. LLC alleging that the defendant violated the St. Louis Revised Code and International Property Maintenance Code.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on May 31, 2013, the defendant purchased the Sidney Street property, and since then the property has been allowed to deteriorate. The plaintiffs claim the property constitutes an ongoing public and private nuisance due to its dilapidated and deteriorated condition, which will likely endanger the lives of nearby residents.
The plaintiffs hold St. Louis Redevelopment Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to reasonably maintain the property, violated the building code and failed to maintain the property in such a manner to constitute a health or safety hazard to neighbors and passersby.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek to order enjoining defendant requiring to abide by applicable state and local law regarding the condition of Sidney Nuisance, compensation for fees, costs, and further relief that the Court finds to be necessary and proper. They are represented by Jonathan P. Beck and Dale Sweet of The Law Offices of Jonathan P. Beck in St. Louis.
