Cleveland Housing Judge Issues Largest Fines for Failure to Fix Derelict Property Conditions

A Cleveland judge recently fined two South Carolina real estate companies more than $13 million for their persistent failure to fix derelict property conditions. This marks the largest collective fines the court has imposed.


According to this article at, “The cases involve major violations at eight properties and less significant ones at five others. The earliest complaints date to January 2008. The judge calculated the fines from the number of violations, the number of days they continued, and the maximum daily fine amount, $1,000 to $5,000.”
