Ohio Tenants’ Top Complaints About Landlords: Review - WKBN

From a cell phone or any other personal device there is a website that allows renters around the world to anonymously review and share information about their landlord. It’s simply called Rate The Landlord, which states on its website: “We are a community platform that elevates tenant voices to promote landlord accountability.” An array of reviews are present on the site from as far away as Brisbane, Australia; to Pittsburgh, Pa.; Kent, Ohio; and more.
