Sleazy Slumlord

Posted 2 days ago

Avoid Sloane & his buildings at any cost. Literally RUN away from any building he's associated with. Sloane is a liar and a slum lord. In the year I lived in one of his buildings the building was never clean, littered with trash, grime and mouse feces. A window in the hallway was broken the entire year. Getting Sloane to fix or address any issue is torture. He's unresponsive. If you do manage to get him on the phone, he behaves like an abusive bully.

Money Hungry P.O.S.

Posted 1 week ago

Bruce (and his brother Michael) are true NYC scum. Prepare for him to throw you out the second he thinks he can get new tenants in at a higher rent. He'll never answer his phone, only emails occasionally, and will Nickle and dime you to the poor house.

Landlord from Hell

Posted 1 week ago

Landlord abruptly cancelled leases to perform "renovations." Our apartment was listed less than 4 days after we left. The only change was painted cabinets and he was charging $2,000 more than we renewed for.

Nasty Landloard

Posted 2 weeks ago

Bruce Sloane will do anything to make a buck, including asking for proof that rent was paid many many months in advance, asking for credit check payments without actually running credit checks, and refuses to address noise complaints in his units.

In a world of impersonal Landlord Tenant relationships it is a pleasure to be able to reach Bruce or his assistant at any time.

Posted 4 months ago

Bruce was great. The advertising was clear & factual. He face-timed me so that we actually had a connection during covid. The apartment was all cleaned and painted for our move in. I have enjoyed living at his building. His assistant was super helpful - even giving us telephone numbers to call to set up cable & Con Ed. Unless my job takes me from NY I plan on staying with Bruce.

Horrific.

Posted 6 months ago

Bruce is a horrific landlord. He is well known for giving good first year leases and jacking the prices up massively afterwards. He is horrific with paperwork often claiming a tenant didn't pay rent months later. Will threaten eviction constantly to get his way. I sent him rent one month, didn't note my apartment number on the memo field and he deposited the check and claimed I never paid. Took over a month to dispute.

Great location - Landlord actually cares

Posted 2 years ago

The apartments are rented no fee by the Landlord’s assistant Evan who is a really nice young guy. The Landlord, Bruce Sloane made it a point to meet us in person for the lease signing. He explained that his family has owned the buildings for between 30 - 60 years depending. They are responsive and personable. I have recommended friends to his buildings. I will only move when I am ready to buy my first apartment .

Affordable West Village Living

Posted 3 years ago

Kinda surprised about all the negatives here; hope we don't end up coming back to re-write :-| We moved here from a dump in the East Village. Only been here a year; it's a pretty standard small pre-war building.. We don't really interact with Bruce, but he is our landlord and we met him at our lease signing. He seems pretty nice. His assistant Evan rented us the apartment for no fee and for the small issues we've had, we just text him and then they take care of it pretty quickly. We haven't seen any roaches in the building since we've been here. Last fall, there were mice, but they took care of it and we haven't seen any since. Garbage was a bit of a mess but getting better. We're coming up on our renewal.

A bad dude

Posted 4 years ago

Rent went up an INSANE amount while I rented one of Bruce's apartments. The plumbing is a disaster: the radiators bang like crazy. We all complained for months- he would wait until the winter was over and then delay another year... then another... until finally I had to leave. He kept my deposit because I broke the lease- due to uninhabitable conditions. Typical NY nightmare story. Stay away.

This guy is the devil reincarnated. Mice, Rats, gushing water leaks. Avoid living in his decrepit buildings that he inherited from his dad.

Scumlord if there ever was one! And his brother Michael.

Posted 5 years ago

Bruce evicted me for underpaid rent two months. Fine. But he didn't have to steal all my belongings. Front door hardly locked. No security system. No smoke or Co2 detector. Rats, mice, cockroaches,ants.

Terrible experience

Posted 5 years ago

Bruce was generally not responsive and we had a lot of issues with hot water/heating not working, or water being shut off, especially in the winter when it was most an issue. The building was in terrible repair and he would do nothing to fix it -- I was even locked in one day, and the fire escape had a bicycle lock shutting it. When i called the fire department to let me out, Bruce yelled at my roommates and I for calling them.
