We’ve all had an apartment where we were pretty convinced our landlord was the absolute worst in the New York, but now there’s a handy resource to verify that yes, in fact, he is.

For the fifth year in a row, the city has released its interactive map of the 100 worst landlords in the city. Compiled from data gathered from the Department of Buildings and Department of Housing Preservation and Development, the Landlord Watchlist brings together the landlords with the most violations relative to the number of properties they own in an easy-to-read map.

The worst offender? Bronx landlord Ved Parkash with a staggering 2,235 violations in 11 different buildings. See? Things could be worse. 

Check out if your building is on the list here.
