BEDFORD PARK - Neighbors in a Bedford Park building have banded together to change their living conditions.

Residents at 3094 Villa Ave. say that they've had to fight constantly for the necessary repairs to their building.

It was only after going on a building-wide rent strike and filing a legal motion to sue for repairs that the tenants saw some results.

The apartment building is currently in the process of foreclosure. If that goes through before the tenants are able to sue for more repairs, the new owner will be responsible for those fixes.

The tenants association says no matter who that is, they're going to be held responsible.
