After U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) called for a federal investigation into TEH Realty for dangerous and unlivable conditions at their properties in St. Louis and Kansas City, Managing Partner Michael Fein was indicted today with two felony charges of wire fraud and bank fraud.
I am delighted at this result for those Missourians who have suffered, and I again call on my colleagues in the Senate to take up and pass my bill creating a bad-landlord database to hold these slumlords accountable— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) August 20, 2020
Senator Hawley’s calls for federal investigations came after he toured one of TEH Realty’s most dangerous and unlivable properties, Bridgeport Crossing. He has since introduced legislation to create a comprehensive database of bad landlords like TEH Realty for federal and local housing authorities to coordinate and crack down on landlords who fail to uphold basic living standards for their tenants.
