OK. How crazy can things get?

4 months after moving into a new home with a 2 year lease, my landlord informs me she is selling the place and starts having strangers coming in and out of my home.

Hello...I have been renting from the same people for several years. I have had to deal with loud nieghbors for most of the time. I live in a unit that is directly below my manager. He ignores my complaints about the other tenants. I recently received an email from my landlord threatening eviction if I continue to complain. They are basically saying that I need to put up with the noise or I will be kicked out. That is not fair! The neighbors are loud all hours of the night & day. I never get any peace here. I am a college student taking online courses.

I signed a 16 month lease Jan 2009. On July 24th I got a Notice of Default. I continued to pay rent to the landlord; he said he was trying to renegotiate the mortgage. On Nov 19th the property went to auction and title reverted to the bank. However, the bank never recorded the trustee's deed. So I continued to pay rent to the landlord. Jan 12, 2010 I received a letter from the landlord stating that ownership of the property had transferred to CEREF (a real estate investment company in Long Beach).

With only cursory notice three weeks ago, landlord has begun major remodeling of the entire fourplex containing our apartment. There are now no exterior walls or roof covering. There is no security or privacy. Beautiful deck was removed and all plants in garden have been cut down. There is constant hammering, sawing, and dust. Apartment is freezing cold at night. Water is periodically turned off. Garage is blocked. No rental adjustment was offered. I do not know what to do.

Hello,

I am a renter of an apartment for over 12 years… rent never late or short.
Quiet building until a new property manager started. Then problems began.
