Youngstown Group Protests Unfair Housing Practices - WFMJ


A bus with 55 concerned citizens from Youngstown joined ACTION and the YNDC on a protest trip to Columbia-South Carolina Saturday morning.

Members of the group say they plan to stand up to Vision Property management for what they call predatory practices in the city of Youngstown.

They accuse the management group of operating business practices that have harmed both residents and properties, renting homes to individuals using predatory land contracts. They say renters have agreed to the terms under the impression they were renting to own. 

After the contracts are signed, they say Vision Properties Management increased rent on customers, which in some cases resulted in evictions. To read the full story from WFMJ, click here.
