Hundreds of residents in Park Ridge Apartments in Ferguson are concerned about where they will live next month because of mass-eviction notices sent to them by the landlord in November.

Housing advocates say people who live in nearly 400 units in the low-income housing complex received letters from the company T.E.H. Realty asking them to be out of their apartments by Nov. 14. Some tenants say they were asked to leave by the end of the month.

Section 8 voucher recipients, whose rent is partially paid through the St. Louis County Housing Authority, are among the most concerned about the notices. Leaders at the county housing authority and housing lawyers say the eviction notices Park Ridge tenants received are unlawful because they were not issued by a court. Check out the full story.
