Ridgeview Place tenant worries about financial help that has yet to arrive


Residents of Ridgeview Place, a building in Langford, continue to face uncertainty and panic as the property remains declared unsafe for occupancy.

Ashley MacDonald is one of those residents. She and her father and son had to move out earlier this week.

She says she wants to get movers and collect the rest of their things but has yet to receive any financial help.

Earlier this week, the property manager for the building, Centurion Property Associates, offered tenants assistance of up to$2,500 — plus a refund of their deposits.

That includes the remainder of May’s rent.

“We have not received any of that yet, just to be clear,” MacDonald said.

Earlier this week, CHEK News tried to speak with someone from Centurion Property Associates, but no one was available.

“I feel like we’ve all gotten a really clear picture of who the property manager is, and who the owners of the building are. In the fact that there’s been such inaction until we started making some noise,” MacDonald said.

She says tenants are organizing and have a lawyer they are talking to about what their next steps might be.
