Slumlord Owns 241 Housing Units in OB
Many OBceans struggle long and hard to earn the financial resources to purchase their one house, condo or apartment. Many never obtain enough to make the plunge into buying property in Ocean Beach. It is so expensive to buy a home here at the coast, that it’s prohibitive for most.
Not Michael Mills, the notorious slumlord of Ocean Beach.
Mills has a virtual empire in OB. He and his trusts own 241 homes, condos and apartments in the Ocean Beach area.
Imagine that. Two-hundred and forty-one units. And many of these units are within multi-unit apartments. Look at that map. See the list.
Back last June, we began the effort to document Mills’ properties in the community. On June 4th, a tenants’ rights rally was held in OB at the end of Newport. During the event, Mills’ name kept coming up. Here’s how we reported then:
On Saturday, June 4th, activists from a renters’ advocate organization called San Diego Tenants United held a rally at the foot of Newport Avenue, where among other issues in the speeches and testimonials given by organizers, supporters and OB tenants, the name of a notorious OB slumlord was mentioned several times: Michael Mills.
