HUD injustice here in Batavia

posted by daniel cherry.

A womanfrom HUD,Pathstone inspected our apatment on may 15th 09.

The woman was walking around our apartment, looking for problems.She was counting bedrooms.She asked where is the third bedroom.When she finally found the bedroom/hallway.She said thats the third bedroom?I said that's exactly what i said when i was looking at it.But we were nearly homeless so i took it.She said its messy there are too many boxes, and the door is blocked.I said"If it will make you happy i will clean it up.(.All my pictures from my childrens whole lives are in there.And empty bandage boxes from the last year.If she'd bothered to look in the hallway/bedroom she'd have seen a matress).Immediately after that she goes to our bathroom.She says we put a hole in the door.She writes it down.I said no that hole was in there when we moved in!!I took pictures then.She the HUD /pathstone apartment inspector started asking me how much we pay.Why was she asking that?She asked how much do you pay?I told her 2/3 of the money is taken from my boys social services money without my consent.It's a new law.She said youd be surprised how many people don't know how much they pay(.I had gone to a HUD/Pathstone meeting on april 28th.They ask and you must prove your finances.)The Inspector said she will look and if she doesn't see anything about a hole in the door we put it there.I called and spoke to her.She said its not written down and yes you did put a hole in the door.I was very angry.I told her we fixed this place up.When we moved in the garage was full of junk.It took 2 giant dumpsters to get it out.My boys and i cleaned up this property!!There were wires hanging out of the kitchen outlet.The basement was full of junk.She said ok if you don't like it file for a hearing with her boss.(We did that last year and were made to pay extra money for the 3rd bedroom when we were kicked out at 119 state st illegally).We were denied appeal.HUD rented our old apartment.I lost my whole security there.Why? because they said we ruined the kitchen floor.Because the refigerator leaked.I'd be willing to bet that HUD and the city plumbing inspector overlooked what we were threwn out for last year.I will ask again at the city.Hud said o its too bad they never inspected it after we moved.It was better than before we moved in 119 state).Do i see a pattern here?I think so.May 21st 09.We get our letter from HUD Pathstone.It says they raised the amount the landlord gets by 30$ 880$They raised the amount we pay by 100$a month.We are on rent control housing supposedly.We live on 10,500 a year.That is a lot to us.

So i called HUD Pathstone again.I asked why are we being charged so much more.She said it's because we don't use the (alleged) third bedroom.It is a hallway.I said yes we do.The boys argue over who wants to sleep in the cell.I said i want a hearing.She said call Buffalo and gives me the number.The same number that i called last year and they don't care at all.I won't call it again.HUD Pathstone is to reinspect the apartment.Why didn't they wait until then?O i am really upset.This will affect my boys.I also asked her about the holes in the doors.She said o we're not saying you did it.Do ya think our land?lord will charge us for it when we get threwn out again with a little help form HUD?I do.Why should we pay for holes we did not make?

I called my land/lord.He the owner of 4 highlnd pk and 63 other properties says we are good tenants.He will work with us.He knows we cleaned up his property.We were not paid for it.He said he was on the phone all day with people complaining about HUD Pathstone problems and he's tired of it.

See if you complain to HUD Pathstone about problems you are risking being expelled from your residence.Like i was last year.There are laws to protect tenants.Like you can withhold rent until things are fixed.But if you are on HUD and withhold rent.They say you will be shut off HUD.Because you can not withhold rent under New York Landlord tenant laws.Real Property laws.There are laws that say HUD Pathstone land/lords can charge more too.
 

So in my opinion people on HUD ? Pathstone are being denied their rights.They are it is true.And where does all that money go to?(It's not going to the properties).HUD ? Pathstone they do not protect the tenants.They protect the landlords.People have to fear them.They can destroy your life in a heartbeat.And make it so you can not afford to buy your children ,clothes or eat.Me i will fight with every ounce of my being for our rights.And i will risk it all.I can not go through this every year!!Mabe if more people did what i am going to do it would be fixed.Because our HUD systym is broken.So if someone sees this write to HUD in washington.Not buffalo.Write senators and congressman.Write OBAMA.Tell them without fear what is going on here.And most likely across the nation.

HUD / Pathstone is causing me trauma.I have had more than my share of trauma caused by not only them but also the courts in this city.What is our population now?I thought it was 24,000 years ago.And dropping.Mabe this will touch prominent people the wrong way.So mabe i will have to post it somewhere else.But i will.I will copy and paste this till my fingers are raw!! Why don't people in Batave have the same rights as other cities?Guilty till proven innocent.The cost is enormous.But that is whole other story or is it?Prominent people have rights to do anything and it is ok.Liberty and justice for some.

Daniel If you put the time and effort into finding a job to improve your life instead of wasting time and effort fighting and complaining about HUD you would get further ahead faster. By being dependent on government programs you allow the government and government employees to control certain aspects of your life. Take control of your own life.

Peter, That's ok with me. I just wanted to be clear that you resent other people getting money from the government, like Daniel, but its ok for you to takee money from me. And your reason is that somebody got some, so I want mine too.

Richard you are right.But i am disabled and need a sit down type job.Or one that i can sit most of time.I am not trained for a sit down job.I need a sitter if i go to school.I'm not good at algebra at all.It was not required when i was in school.But to pass college it is now.People still get HUD and work.But we are terminated.For no reason other than a video.Not because someone was threatened.I know someone could help us.But people think its ok to lie and violate our rights because we are on HUD and poor.Its wrong.What would you say to my homeless children?Get a job.I'm glad cause yer dad is on HUD so suffer because someone has an attitude problem at HUD?And can't even give us a hearing so we know what rent to pay.We do not deserve this.My main job is taking care of my boys.It is difficult alone.I needed surgery 2 years ago.I have been trying to keep my boys from foster care.I need a 6 week sitter to have surgery.If they go to mom's they don't get proper attention.If i thought they were better off at moms id send them there to live.And go have surgery.You should be nice to all people.Even poor ones in HUD.HUD is a corrupt government program.That is really what the story is about.Its a shame.Shame on those at HUD who try to make my boys homeless to punish me for a video.And yes i did expect someone to try and help us somehow.Cause this is wrong.And in the end the boys will suffer most at the hands of HUD workers here in your fine city.(Is the problem fixed where i lived before?Or did some city worker overlook that too?I asked and was rudely told they don't have any other information.I need the information for small claims court July 21st 09). They can't live on their own.What will happen to them?all i want is an expedited hearing i filed June 12th.I cant even call HUD for fear of them sayig""" i did something.I don't even know what they said i did.The ones who should be punished are not present here.You don't know what the HUD people here who you pay with taxes are capable of do you?But we do it's on the bottom of my blog from last year.Your HUD workers are displacing families.To profit.Tearing us apart.Thanks...Tenants for justice.For all tenants to be treated Equal!!

I need to keep going on this story.Tuesday we must pay rent.We always paid our portion on time.So since our apartment was not reinspected,and we had no expedited hearing.I must pay money i don't owe, so my boys have a place to live.I filed for a hearing on June 4th and June 12th.This all started when someone said we put a hole in a door.And then i dare ask why rent went up?I guess fair market value does not matter here.NY should have laws like Cali does now.I don't understand how we get terminated asap.But if we ask for an expedited hearing, we wait, and wait.And how can they not reinspect the apartment?

I just read every single comment. One comment sums up this entire situation. Posted by Peter O'Brien on June 1, 2009 - 7:29am You're Welcome. If I was peter I'd probably add a seven letter adverb between the words "you're" and "welcome".

J. Hale i have told him many times to do something with the talent he has but there is always a reason he cant do it. Dan has to much time on his hands so i believe he sits and thinks up things to say or do to people.Like myself...after every visit i have with the kids he always takes me back to court for something or another.Does he think the travel will bother me? No it wont, but it will be hard as i now have a 3 month old son. He has never been grateful for what others do for him. When i lived there in Batavia i wanted to see the boys more than i but there was always some off the wall reason why i couldnt see them. But when my visit for the summer fell till the day after the oldest boys birthday he had a fit thats why we are back in court. But i agreed to bring them home on his birthday but it didnt go as planed cause my husband does WORK for a living. And i was getting to be 4pm and its a 2 1/2 hr trip there but i brought them anyway to gt there and him not be home and then called the boys at 11:30pm to say im home now. And you say imagine the stress for the hardworking families that dont get help. Well we are one of them families. Not to mention we just bought a house and have a 3 month old baby. Imagine the life them 2 boys have they have no positive guidance in live...
