On Tuesday, June 13, the City of San Bernardino, in conjunction with court-appointed receiver GS Strategies, Inc., will host an open house for a newly rehabilitated property made possible under the RENU San Bernardino receivership program. The three-unit residential complex located at 273 W. Fourteenth Street is no longer a neighborhood eyesore; instead its impressive curb appeal brightens the surrounding neighborhood. The 2,048 square-foot property, listed at $309,000, has been completely renovated with new roofs, cabinetry, windows, fixtures, and landscape. The sale is subject to court approval as required under receivership.
The Receiverships Empowering Neighborhood Upkeep (RENU) San Bernardino program aims at rehabilitating substandard buildings through a cost-recovering mechanism provided for by State law. The City files receivership actions against unresponsive property owners in civil court pursuant to the California Health and Safety Code § 17980.7 which allows a city to request the appointment of a receiver when a property owner has failed to bring a dangerously substandard building into compliance within a reasonable time after being notified of the substandard conditions.
30 properties are currently in the RENU San Bernardino program pipeline with another multi-unit location scheduled to go on the market as early as next month. Questions regarding the 273 W. Fourteenth Street property should be directed to GS Strategies, Inc. at 909-228-5255. For more information on the RENU San Bernardino program, please visit, www.SBCity.org/RENUSB.
