Concord Property Management, the company that for months has managed more than 80 rental properties in San Diego County that are caught up in a real estate scheme run by Jim McConville, is facing media scrutiny for its management of another McConville property in Fresno.

Yesterday, my colleague Kelly Bennett posted this link to a story on KSEE Channel 24 in Fresno, the city’s NBC affiliate. The story took a look at McConville’s Fresno property, part of the Bay Area businessman’s statewide empire that has been collapsing in recent months.

KSEE Channel 24 followed up yesterday’s piece with a new broadcast that focuses on the plight of the renters in the Fresno property, Stonemark Homes. Here’s the video:

I’ve been hearing similar stories from renters at McConville’s units in Escondido and San Marcos. The renters are confused about who exactly they should be paying their rent to since finding out that McConville doesn’t own the condos they live in.

I have been in daily contact with the local renters, who were due to pay rent to Concord on May 1.

Several of those renters have not paid the rent and said instead they are putting the money aside until they figure out who they should be paying. A few of the renters reported having letters posted on their doors on Monday by Concord employees warning them against providing legal advice to other residents, but no one’s yet told me they’ve been told to pay or get out.

Victor Goliac, the owner of Concord, no longer takes my phone calls. Goliac told me a couple of weeks ago that he was wrapping up his contract with McConville for the San Diego properties. But when I asked Goliac if he would continue to collect rent from the tenants, he refused to answer.
