Hamilton - Barton Tenant Action Against Malleum Properties

Posted September 27, 2018

On Friday, ACORN leaders and tenants at 160 Sherman Ave S rallied outside their 8-unit apartment to demand their new landlord Malleum Properties act on the urgent pest and repair issues. Malleum Properties bought the apartment in July and has since ignored tenant concerns, introduced a complicated online rent payment system and issued notices to end tenancy. 

New leader Elizabeth Ellis said “Malleum is aware of the issues here but has refused to listen to us. It feels like their main priority is to make it harder for us to live here and push us out.”
 
Tenants declared a small victory with Malleum finally responding to pest issues with a bedbug spray on Monday.
