Baltimore Tenants Say Kushner Companies are “Neglectful” Landlords

HeadlineMay 24, 2017
H06 kushner

A new investigation by The New York Times Magazine reveals how Trump’s son-in-law and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner’s companies act as “neglectful and litigious” landlords of low-income housing units in Baltimore. The article chronicles how Kushner Companies hound low-income tenants with a barrage of lawsuits, eviction notices and late fees—even when the tenants are in the right. Tenants also described terrible maintenance practices, which created nearly unlivable conditions for some families.
