(CBS DETROIT) – Some people in Detroit’s Palmer Woods neighborhood are fed up with their living conditions.

They claim their apartments have broken windows, no heating and safety concerns, and their landlord reportedly doesn’t fix anything.

On Friday, residents protested outside the offices of GMS, the real estate management company for urban communities in Arizona.

Protesters say Urban Communities properties have racked up more than 200 violation tickets.

“So we can hold them accountable and let them fix these properties, or turn them over to someone who is actually going to fix them up and do a good job for these tenants.” Because if you don’t, we don’t want you in the city. We don’t want you in our district if you leave our residents like this,” said Juwan Outlaw, community relations manager with Councilmember Angela Whitfield-Calloway’s office.

Urban communities had not responded to CBS News Detroit’s request for comment as of the time this article was published.
