Evictions avoided at foreclosed complex

A group of Liberty City apartment residents who faced eviction December
31
after their complex was sold in foreclosure will get help with
short-term housing while their buildings are repaired by
the new owner. The properties, at 6901 NW Eighth Avenue and 825 NW 70th
Street, fell into disrepair after the landlord defaulted on his loan
and died. Great Florida Bank foreclosed on the properties but did not
maintain them. New
buyer Mario de las Cuevas has agreed to extend the tenants’ stay until
the
sale closes, promised them their old units at affordable rents and
said he will try to find them short-term rentals in units owned by
associates.
