San Bernardino building placed in receivership

The former American Sports University Dormitory in San Bernardino has been put into receivership.

In a ruling issued Jan. 18, San Bernardino County Superior Court Judge Thomas Garza appointed Richardson Griswold of Griswold Law in Encinitas the property’s receiver, according to a statement on the city’s website.

The building at 340 West Fourth St. has been a problem for the city, having fallen into serious disrepair while being used for un-permitted housing. Persons living there were “subjected to unsafe and unlivable conditions,” including black mold, non-working fire alarms and sprinklers, blocked fire escapes and insects and rodents.

San Bernardino has spent the last 18 months trying to get control of the property.

“We are pleased that Judge Garza has granted our motion to appoint a receiver,” said City Manager Charles Montoya. “He agreed that the site conditions have likely worsened since we made our initial request for a receiver a year ago, and that the property poses a danger to the community.”

Griswold may now rehabilitate the property, sell it or demolish the building. If it’s sold, the buyer must agree to restore the site and correct all of the problems the city has identified with the structure, according to the statement.
