(WXYZ) — We have an update to a story we first told you on Monday, reminding us to remind renters that you have the right to a safe and sound dwelling.
And to remind landlords who take advantage of their tenants that there are hefty consequences.
As 7 Action News Reporter Andrea Isom explains, some of those penalties come in the form of fines and a heavy weight on your conscience.
The Hunter family has fallen victim to a landlord who did not show them the dignity or respect they deserved.
Renters & Landlords looking for guidance and advice, please visit detroitmi.gov - BSEED, Buildings, Safety Engineering and Environmental Department.
