Landlords Suing City of Morgantown Over New Developments at WVU

Posted: Updated:

A group of landlords are suing the City of Morgantown over new developments at West Virginia University.

David and Richard Biafora of Metro Rentals, and Dan Shearer want the city to inspect and charge certain inspection fees on development associated with WVU.

Metro Rentals and Shearer was the city to stop ongoing construction by private developers in the city limits and keep tenants from living in apartments that have not been inspected.

The landlords said they have met with the city numerous times before the filings. This is the only to ensure the city follows it’s own ordinances, zoning and building requirements.

The city has yet to respond to the suit.
