    what would be the translation of the phares slum lords from English to Spanish in a setence for a weekly news letter.
    Offenders, sometimes called "slum lords", have begun to systematically repair and improve their properties.

    Infractores, a veces llamados “ barrio bajo”, han empezado a sistemáticamente reparar y mejorar sus propiedades.

    Thanks

    slum lord is a derogatory term for landlords, generally absentee landlords, who attempt to maximize profit by minimizing spending on property maintenance, often in deteriorating neighborhoods. They may need to charge lower than market rent to tenants. Severe housing shortages allow slumlords to charge higher rents.

    maybe "dueño de una pocilga"
