Property Address:  2726 Fox Street, Baltimore, MD 21211

2726 Fox Street
2726 Fox, Rear
2726 Fox, Side – Home next to it was demolished by the City.

Received an interesting email this morning from Syed Shah, one of two founders of Pizza Bolis and the now-former owner of the property detailed above:

7:50 PM (13 hours ago)

to: me
Name: Syed Shah
Comment: Hello you guy’s are making a mockery of my restate company. If you have any problems with me

please contact which is my cell [REDACTED]

I have my permits and it takes time to work on these houses. Thing is these houses you posted on the website are not even worked on yet. I bought the houses in that condition and they will be worked on and will be improved over time. So please again contact me at [REDACTED]

So we can get this matter of false judgement on my company to rest.

After doing some checking, it appears that as of yesterday (August 31, 2012), Mr. Shah’s real estate company no longer owns the property. The City’s receiver for the V2V program — One House At A Time, Inc. — now owns it. My response to Mr. Shah:

Mr. Shah,

Apparently as of yesterday, your property at 2726 Fox Street has gone into receivership, and you no longer own it. I will post an update with this information.

My advice? Don’t wait so long to act on a property. You owned that property for seven years before ever filing for a single exterior permit, according to the city’s permits website.

Thank you for your email — hopefully now the property will be purchased by someone who will fix it up quickly and become a responsible community member.

    The nerve of you to post the truth about his properties !!

    The unrighteous indignation of a slumlord who’s done nothing but contribute filth, blight and unsafe conditions to a neighborhood, an entire community….yeah yeah yeah…I swear, it’s as though there’s a universal handbook of lame excuses for “extractive” investors, parasites, (as we’ve come to know them).

    Good to know he’s been relieved of the building.

    And apparently, Mr. Shah needs to be updated as well.

    • Baltimore Slumlord Watch

      Yeah you’d think he’d know that he no longer owns the property…or that he was sued…

  • Golden Cockroach

    He’s indignant about your post and he doesn’t even know that he’s been sued and the property has been taken away from him? That has to the absolute pinnacle of neglect.

    • Baltimore Slumlord Watch

      Agreed. I wonder if he even showed up for court — talk about chutzpah…

  • Golden Cockroach

    I shared this on FB with my community, it’s almost too good to be overlooked as the next best reality show: America’s Dumbest Slumlords. Now that’s what I call entertainment….LOL!!!

  • Leben unglaublich (@Rhiannon_Rising)

    Like others have said, its pretty sad that you had to be the one to update him on his properties. And I can’t imagine what he is thinking trying to get you to call him! What in the world?!

    • Baltimore Slumlord Watch

      I don’t even call my friends most of the time, never mind an irresponsible property owner. Email and text are the way to go, in my world. 🙂

    I think a lot of these guys want to talk on the phone because it allows them to blow smoke up your butt, and make promises they have no intention of keeping. MD needs to amend their wiretap law…

      Could be. I’m just not a phone person. Plus, I’m far more accessible via email.
