Landlord Nightmares

Hugh Sisley holds the dubious distinction of being Seattle's most notorious slumlord. The owner of some 50 Roosevelt-area properties is currently $2M in the hole in fines to the city over rental homes he failed to maintain. Now, Seattle is starting an initiative to inspect every rental unit in town and City Attorney Pete Holmes is coming for those overdue (and ever-climbing) fines. It's pretty likely most or all of Sisley's properties will be foreclosed on as collateral. Seattle Weekly has more on the nefarious landlord and his pending comeuppance.
