DETAILS

Legal advocates say the court order is remarkable.

 “It is very unusual and even unprecedented to see the loss of so many affordable rental properties at the same time in a market that is already stressed,” says Drew Schaffer, executive director of Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid. “It’s really unfortunate that these properties have deteriorated to the point they have become unhealthy and unsafe.”
