Patriot Properties (also known to operate under a plethora of other names) own’s upwards of 50 documented properties in this listing and potentially as many as 100-200 or more across Lorain County. The company is owned by Jerrod Biebrick, who has a criminal record and has been exposed for being a slumlord in the past. He also has had to change his online name numerous times in an effort to hide the plethora of negative feedback they receive – they are by far the largest slumlord’s submitted to Scumbagged.com to date. Most recently changing to “JBNT Properties” or “Patriot Properties”. The company has been exposed, in this instance for allowing one Lorain woman who pays $650/month in rent at one of their homes that has fire & electrical violations, broken doors, feces piling up in the basement, broken pipes & they even failed to pay her water bill (after she gave them the money) which resulted in her water being turned off. This is her story…
As if it’s not bad enough sleeping in a home that gives you allergic reactions to the black mold (see pictures below) or restless nights due to the fact of insecure doors & windows, but the actual owner of the company is a complete dirt-bag. According to the tenant, he has sexually harassed her by sending her nude pictures of himself and propositioning her for sex. The moment that she refused to sleep with him was when her real hell began.
Readers Note: The tenant always pays her bills on time, she’s a relatively good tenant, even going as far as to make home repairs (when she can). See the documentation to support her claims within this article.
Not So Fun Fact: It took months for Patriot Properties to install a handrail at the property which caused the woman’s 85 year old mother to have to crawl up the stairs. Oh & the owner also 100% fucks his secretary and has been rumored to bang his other tenants across the county too!
I deserve better & so many others renting from them deserve better.”
“I’m personally a disabled American and they prey on people like that because they know that we don’t always have the ways and means to fight back financially or the intelligence to reach out and expose them. Well, this is not the case with me. I deserve better & so many others renting from them deserve better.”
Did You Know? That Patriot Properties had to create their own website to display their rental properties (which is ran by Joy Sparton) because the other websites are so bogged down by comments and people complaining about them? Complaints stemming from them being con-artists, slumlords and scumbags…
Meet The Owner
The tenant at this specific property has requested a kitchen cupboard since she moved in. The cupboard was broken and hanging off the hinges and fell off and hit her 85 year old mother in the foot. She had to crawll up the front stairs because they refused to put a hand railing in as per Lorain City code.
The Screen Door
The screen door is broken, most of the windows do not have screens. This screen door goes flying open all the time. The two front windows are broke. The door is stripped from the wood and just kind of sitting there in place.
Broken Water Pipes
This is one of the broken water pipes where all the water runs out. There’s so much water flowing out that it’s actually causing a sink hole in the front yard near the sidewalk. As a result of the broken pipe the water bill is over $200/month for just one person. There is also mainly sewage that piles up around the house as a result.
Bathroom Black Mold
This is the black mold that’s growing in the bathroom underneath all of the tiles. It’s been wet because the pipes leak in the bathroom and it’s covered in black mold. The roof leaks into the attic and the attic leaks into the woman’s bedroom in the hallway and we imagine there’s plenty of mold up there as well.
Reactions From Mold
The woman is allergic to mold which has caused her to be in constant distress. She had pneumonia twice last summer and is constantly having allergic reactions. These pictures of the woman were taken on 5/16/2019 and you can see visibly swollen eyes due to the allergies.
Outlet On Fire
This outlet catches on fire when in use. This tenant has had the smarts to refrain from using it after her first and last attempt at doing so when flames erupted from the outlet.
Raw Human Sewage
These pictures depict raw sewage accumulating in the basement from the entire community. This is where it lands, then has to be shoveled out by the pounds – weekly. I will send you the pictures of the raw sewage accumulating in my basement from the entire community this is where it lands shovel it out by the pounds weekly. Yes those are actually plastic bags full of human feces…
Fire & Electrical Violations
There are 72 fire and electrical code violations in the basement. There are also 32 flying taps that should all be in boxes.
You can see the spaces in the breaker box there should be no spaces and this should also be flush to the wall this is not code whatsoever and it’s all outdated and sometimes it’s sparks for the tenant as well.
These loose wires featured above in the photographs should all be encased in a fireproof covering – these wires run all over the basement.
The Forgotten Fence
There’s a tree that knocked over her fence months ago and there it lays still to this day.
How She Lives
As you can see the tenant is not a slob who’s trying to destroy the property in any way. She actually does more repairs than she should (when she can afford to do so). However, she is on disability and with such a high water bill & being overcharged for rent (she currently pays $650 for what she calls a “shit hole”) there’s really nothing much left from her check. She does work part-time to make ends meet.
Tenant: “Like I said I’m always neat and tidy I’m a quiet tenant I don’t cause any problems I also just painted the outside of the house so that it looks much nicer because it was just horrible the gutters are all clogged, etc.”
This is a picture of one of the walls buckling from water piling up behind it from the roof. I don’t know if you can see the buckling of this wall but it’s also buckles from the leaks from the bathroom there’s actually water leaking out from the bathroom right now into my kitchen You can see the wet spots it also leaks out right here around my light fixture Sometimes directly through the light fixture
Where’s The Doors?
This is how she gets her back door to stay shut – with a piece of cardboard. How’s that for top-notch security?
Proof of Payment
This is the proof that she paid the water bill. Her rent is $650 and this particular month she paid $850. The secretary told her that that’s how it should be paid and you can see that she was billed for water and rent. Then, apparently she switched it without telling the tenant. She only found out they did not pay her water bill with the money she gave them when her water was shut off and it remained shut off for 4 days. She had to come up with part of the bill instead of them paying the whole bill to have it turned on – to correct their error.
The Bitch Secretary
Harassing her telling her to pay – after she’s already paid…
The above is the secretary telling the tenant to pay it in full herself and then her agreeing to only pay $280 which wasn’t enough to have the water even turned back on.
And there’s the picture of the blue flag that they tag you with when they come and shut the water off, which they did to this unfortunate woman.

The Bottom Line
SCUMBAGGED Opinion: Apparently this is just business as usual in the city of Lorain. Not only do the landlord’s not care, but neither do the court’s or the local police. Everyone is thoroughly tired of the residents of the city, it’s shitty landlords, the system is overworked and booked and as a result of all the crime, the city has apparently generalized everyone into the same category. If you live here, you deserve what you get. Don’t like it? Just move. That’s the wrong mentality and as such we have a system that is now compounding and festering upon itself, from internal corruption of all levels to an inert hatred beginning to fester within a growing number of the cities 63,000+ residents.
