I am currently trying to get carpeting replaced in my apartment. Without my knowledge, the landlord entered my apartment and took photos of the carpeting. Is that within his rights?
Santa Monica City Attorney's advise, City Council and the Rent Control Board vote "illegally" to convert 38 rent controlled Apartments in a residential zone into a full-scale hotel with valet parking and restaurant.
thank you for taking the time to read this I have been living in this complex for over 25 years. We just got an Ellis act Eviction notice. the new owners bought this place just so they could ellis it and we believe evict us and build Condos. We are looking for anyway we can fight to stay!
So I rented this place with a roommate. and after having some disputes with her, she started lying and distorting my personal life to the landlord! Now the landlord refuses to renew my lease, AND is keeping my deposit!! When I try to confront the landlord, she calls me a liar for trying to explain things. I was served a 30 day notice for breaching the lease, even though the roommate breached the lease AND I'm liable for ANY damage throughout the apartment even though my roommate and I signed different leases.
