Schneider, public records say, wants the city to give him more time to make repairs.
Schneider’s first step in making the request came in the form of an appeal to the Board of Building Standards within weeks of city officials tacking a condemnation notice on the front door.
In a response filed by Schneider’s attorney Brent English that aimed to address the 44 violations the city Building Department put forth as proof the building needed to be condemned, English said Schneider “would not to just sit by and let his house go.”
“We are determined to ensure this will not happen,” he wrote in the seven-page letter to city officials, which was dated June 27.
has Georgy featured yet again as
last week the City of Elyria came to an agreement with George and his attorney Brett English ( remember them????? https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2012/09/17/george-schneider-the-legal-arguments-give-it-some-english/
ELYRIA — The city Law Department has settled a long legal battle with businessman and property owner George Schneider
He’s the reason why Elyria decided it needed to create a Demolition Board of Appeals. He’s the landlord tagged with having received the most code violations from the city of Lorain’s Nuisance Inspection Task Force in its first year. County auditor records from 2013 peg him as the owner of 169 properties countywide.
With the settlement Schneider agrees to make needed repairs to eight Elyria homes and, in exchange, the city will halt its actions to legally force their demolition. Law Director Scott Serazin said the agreement gives the city four important things.
“Work will start immediately. He must use licensed tradespeople. We can get into any of the properties with a 48-hour notice, and we don’t have to send certified mail to multiple addresses to prove service,” Serazin said. “For Schneider, the money he would spend on legal fees and litigation can now be put into his properties.”
The agreement does not stop the city from going after other properties owned by Schneider if enforcement action is needed.
Actually, George has many more than the 169 under his own name as of last year ( and we do know figures have changed since then )

In fact, George lost a duplex over the weekend this one
George, again was featured in the Chronicle article just 5 days later by Evan Goodenow
The second fire was called in at 11:50 p.m. at a vacant two-story wood-frame duplex at 1781-1783 E. 30th St., between Clinton and Pearl avenues. Firefighters still were at Douglas Court, so Livchak said Amherst, Elyria and Sheffield Township firefighters assisted.
Firefighters found heavy fire coming from the rear of 1783 E. 30th and extinguished the fire at 1:29 a.m. Livchak said the blaze was an arson and caused about $30,000 in structural damage. Livchak said an arson also occurred at 1783 E. 30th in September.
The property is owned by landlord George Schneider, according to the Lorain County Auditor’s website. Schneider had the most code violations cited by the Lorain’s Department of Building, Housing and Planning in 2012-13
Well don’t feel too badly for George – Georgy isn’t out of pocket by much as one of the enablers( in my humble opinion) to his property habit – Deutsche Bank only charged him $5,500 ( devaluing the property from the year previously when they were grantor by $44,500-George apparently got a deal because just two years prior to his purchase of $5,500 it sold for $70,000 so discounted 64,500 in two years- Not too shabby George !
It cost the City of Lorain Fire Department, in time, machinery, personnel and danger to life and limb, not to mention putting other properties at risk a great deal more than your purchase price a couple of times over -I am sure -to respond to the number of your “property” fires.
One has to ask after the first fire was anything done to secure that property after previous fires
by Rick Payerchin
In August 2013 firefighters went to the same home for a kitchen fire in the 1783 side of the building, Livchak said.
A month later, the 1781 side was occupied and there was a suspicious fire in the 1783 side, he said. It appeared the home might have been vacant since then because of damage from the second fire.
The building had an estimated value of $30,000 and was considered a total loss, Livchak said. The fire department called for a demolition crew to knock down the remaining structure
Oh George! do you have insurance because if you do it seems you have made a profit – $5,500 purchase and loss $30,000 .
George and Deutsche Bank had more dealings on E 30th Street with George in 2007
So there we have the story continues and Lorain devalues……and smoke gets in your eyes……..
