I moved to Richmond in 2008 to become a member of the faculty of VCU. My wife Jeanine and I found a house on craigslist (821 W. 30th St., Richmond, VA 23225) to rent while we learned about Richmond neighborhoods and to save up for a down payment on a house of our own. Terry and Patti Shulman were the landlords. This blog is about our experiences, what happened to us, and our quest to get our deposit back.
My son had elevated lead levels when we lived at 821 30th St - and we got a scary letter from the City of Richmond about that. His lead was monitored closely after we moved out and, I am happy to report, his lead levels are normal again and he doesn't need any more monitoring. I did notify the Schulman's about this potential problem. Hopefully they look into this!
