508 Winston Avenue

Hopefully the neighbors will keep a close eye on this property, as it went into foreclosure.  Charm City Housing, LLC / Marc Cohen, 1505 Park Avenue #10, Baltimore, MD 21217 has sued to foreclose on the home (Baltimore Circuit Court case number 24C10004284).  Mr. Cohen is an out-of-town “investor” and “developer” with a dubious track record in Baltimore City, according to neighbors of his Washington Village/Pigtown properties and some of the former tenants.  He was accused in 2008 of denying essential services to a tenant (placed on the stet docket).

Update:  Interesting to note that in the “angry lawyer letter” (link opens a PDF) we received through a third party who is not associated with this blog in any way, there is no dispute of the denial of essential services to a tenant.

Update:  Added a link to the Maryland Daily Record public notice of foreclosure.

    Wow that is quite an angry lawyer letter… It really expresses so much anger…. Basically you chose a random person to rant about and defame. Then called them a Slumlord considering the libel involved I don’t see any anger in the lawyer’s tone?

      I’m confused — you’re saying my piece was angry? Hardly. Nor did I defame anyone or libel anyone — nice try, though.
