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.

Wisconsin Legislature Approves Bill Protecting Landlords

The Wisconsin Legislature has passed a Republican bill to protect landlords.

The Senate passed the measure 18-14 Tuesday. It allows local governments to inspect rental properties only in blighted areas with numerous complaints, decreasing values or increases in single-family home conversions to rental units. If an inspection doesn't reveal a violation or the violation is fixed within a month inspectors couldn't return to the property for five years. Inspection fees would be waived in either case.

A group of tenants went to Concord City Hall to make themselves heard on Tuesday, but it turned out the city is already working on the problem.

It’s not just one cockroach or bed bug. They are all over.

Concord Apartment Complex Tenants Say They're Being Pushed Out by Increasing Rents, Poor Conditions

Residents in an apartment complex in Concord claim they are being pushed out by poor living conditions and high rent increases.

On Monday, KRON4 spoke with the affected families who took their concerns to City Hall.

They are families who say they're living in poor conditions, facing no-cause evictions and unfair rent increases.

Stopping by City Hall in Concord, they dropped off papers to have city inspectors tour their apartments and force their landlord to make repairs to problems that the tenants say have long been ignored.

Our landlord became upset after learning my girlfriend rightfully moved in the home.  She began making life difficult by shutting off power, water, cable, cancelling home security services, house cleaner and gardener. When we called the utilities companies we were told that the landlord claims there are unauthorized tenants in her home and did not authorize utility services at the residence of which we rightfully and lawfully lease, with a signed legal and active lease agreement in place.

No-Cause Evictions Imminent at North Portland Apartments; Tenants Push Back

Life is somewhere between hard and heartbreak for the majority-Latino tenants remaining in The Melrose apartments, where residents of 40 of its 72 units are facing an eviction deadline of Feb. 1.

This is the latest, and probably the final, wave of no-cause evictions at the apartment complex, where tenant rights have gone head-to-head against its ownership for the past year.
