Family Left Homeless After Negligent Landlord
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
An Illinois family is homeless and sustained serious property damage after
the roof of their rental home collapsed during last week's heavy rains.
The Granite family of six claims the
accidents is the fault of a negligent landlord. The family claims they complained
of the leaky roof for six months before the landlord began working on
it. Crews started the roof repair on August 12 but did not finish the
work in time for the heavy rains and left the roof uncovered. The ceiling
collapsed and left a husband and wife along with a grandmother and three
young children in the home with a gaping hole in their ceiling. The family
claims almost everything they owned was soaked with the rainfall including
all their furniture, electronics, pictures and irreplaceable keepsakes.
Now the family has nowhere to go and is already struggle financially.
After the homeless family spoke out to the public, the landlord has agreed
to find a place for the family while repairs are being made.
