Hi, I'm Teal and I lived in Chico,Ca in a 3 bdr. 2bath apt. and had a landlord that did not uphold to the standards that they stated that they maintain to be. The unit carpet was not cleaned and we had to clean it the day we moved in as well as it was so old and used so, that the padding had worn as flat as a pancake. One of the burners on the stove never worked and the others were long to heat up as well as the top and bottom of the stove didn't match; the top was from one stove and the bottom was from another one.

Tenants and their supporters rallied in front of 1049 Market Street on November 12, demanding that landlord John Gall withdraw eviction notices for the building. Gall wants to convert residentially occupied units at 1049 Market to offices, a move that would displace tenants and reverse progress toward revitalizing Mid-Market. It’s the residents who keep the street alive after office workers leave, which is why the city is trying to increase housing in the area.

To keep it simple, I was living in a 4 bed 2 bath home with an office for 9 years. My 11 yr daughter and I only. I was lied to and never allowed to sign a written agreement. I was never allowed receipts to the rent i paid monthly. I only spoke and dealt with rental agent whom I learned raised the rent on me years ago without home owners knowlege. I received a 3 day notice of terminiation of tenancy 1 week before default judgment took place on august 2, 2018 with no reasons why.

Tenants, Landlord Clash Over Apartments Damaged by Leaking Roof

An East Hollywood apartment building had a stripped roof for ongoing repairs when rains hit Southern California in early December, so it's now life with water stained walls and floors, but without ceilings and cabinets for tenants.
