Holding HUD Accountable

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Raw sewage on the ground, stairs in disrepair, and boarded up windows are just a few of the 140 code violations Henrico County issued to the Essex Village apartment complex back in November of 2016.

Deputy County Manager Doug Middleton told CBS 6 Problem Solver investigator Melissa Hipolit "it's not a place anybody should live," after issuing the violations.

But, the Section 8 complex had previously received a decent inspection score from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD): a 75b out of 100.
