MANCHESTER- Tenants of a Manchester apartment building are suing their landlord after dangerous lead levels were found in the building.
Brady Sullivan Properties owns the Mill West Lofts. Some tenants say their landlord and a contracting company hired by Brady Sullivan are responsible for lead dust found in their apartments.
Kurt Milligan and his fiancé Barbara Bannon are disappointed after discovering lead dust in the apartment just months after moving in.
The young couple hired a company to test lead levels when they found there was sand-blasting on the floor beneath them.
“The legal limit (on window sills) is 200, we had some as high 7,500,” Milligan said.
A sign on the door of the building warns there is hazardous materials inside that could be dangerous.
Bannon, who is now six months pregnant, was told by her doctor it’s not safe for her to live there.
“Lead exposure to pregnant women can cause behavioral and learning issues in children. And exposure to adults can cause early-onset Alzheimer’s and renal failure in your 40’s,” Bannon said.
According to Milligan, the EPA and OSHA shut down the sand-blasting, and the contractors eventually quit.
The couple has slowly started to move out but are unable to break their lease. Close to two dozen tenants are suing Brady Sullivan.
“Some other tenants have also tried to break their lease and were told in no uncertain terms that Brady Sullivan was not responsible for what happened here,” Milligan said.
It will be up to the courts to decide who is at fault. An attorney for Brady Sullivan tells NH1 News they have no comment at this time.
