Celebrity photographer Ken Nahoum left his Soho apartment — and the building’s residents couldn’t be happier.

Nahoum left 95 Greene Street last week, after a feud that included more than a decade of litigation, the New York Post reported. He allegedly refused to pay common charges and owes the board more than $250,000, the report said.

The photographer declared bankruptcy in 2016. He sold the penthouse to Titan Capital, his real estate lender, to settle $13.5 million he had in debt, the Post said.

Titan plans to list the penthouse next week for about $15 million, Compass’ Leonard Steinberg told the paper. Mark Jovanovic will be the broker.

In a letter to owners and residents, the board said Nahoum received no money from the sale and called him “a continuing distraction for almost three decades.” It also notes that he “stripped the Units of fixtures, sinks, doors and toilets leaving them in disarray.”

In 2015, Nahoum sued his ex, Basia Milewicz, accusing her of failing to honor an agreement to sell her portion of their deluxe triplex penthouse within two years of their breakup. The 8,200-square-foot apartment was combined from three penthouse units. [NYP]Meenal Vamburkar
