A Duo of LLC-Owned Blight: 2315 and 2317 W North Avenue


March 16, 2013 by Baltimore Slumlord Watch

Update:  (Thanks to Reader Rusty for the info!) Both properties are in receivership- Moshe entered into a “consent agreement” on 12/5- obviously he isn’t cooperating judging from the looks of that property. And “In Rem” judgement was entered against Transocean Investments on 5/24.

Property Address:  2315 and 2317 W North Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21216

Property Owner (2315):  Drek, LLC, 3610 W Cold Spring Lane, Baltimore, MD 21215

Registered Agent for Drek, LLC:  Moshe Raphaely, same address.

For those who don’t know, the word “drek” is Yiddish for “shit”.  Nice to see this slumlord thinks so highly of our city, and of his properties.  Judging by the number of housing violations, lead paint cases, injunctions, and foreclosures filed against him, perhaps this slumlord is also referring to his business practices?  Just a guess…

Property Owner (2317):  Transocean Investments, LLC, 14900 River Road, Potomac, MD 20854

Registered Agent for Transocean Investments, LLC:  None listed.  This company is not registered with the State of Maryland.  The business address is a large home owned by Orji Uzor Kalu, a former Nigerian governor, whose girlfriend died “mysteriously” in the home.

City Council District and Contact:  District 7, Nick Mosby

State Senator:  Catherine Pugh

State Delegates:  Barbara RobinsonShawn TarrantFrank Conaway, Jr.

    I wonder if we could get the state to revoke Moshe’s charter on obscenity grounds.
