Why a Dedicated Website?
It’s become clear that the City has not put enough enforcement action against Beal Properties, with seemingly consistent failures to maintain their building in accordance with building code. Meanwhile tenants are often left unaware of such actions unless they know how to locate it.
Yelp, a common review site, has hidden over 400 mostly negative reviews of Beal Properties by deeming them as “unhelpful”. Yet, these are legitimate concerns of their tenants and provides a false assurance that Beal Properties is better than many have experienced. So we want to make sure the full experiences of Beal Properties are better known to prospective and current tenants.
We hope this site provides a public service as an editorial and review source and encourages the City of Chicago to adopt more stringent standards and provide a resource for tenants stuck in similar situations and allowing them to be able to move, regardless of their financial strength.
