For the first time in my life me & my family are now homeless. I have 6 children, 2 with special needs and a husband that is legally blind. All this came about when I questioned my landlord regarding a $40. over charge every month on my rent for the past 4 years. When they responded with it was a side payment to cover the rent contract so in other words they had me paying on the side & I am on Section 8! I told them I wanted no part of their fradulant acts and immediately contacted my HCV worker. They then took me to court for unlawful detainer.


Hi my name is Veronica and i'm in need of help and getting a lawyer. My landlord has been doing some illegal stuff around the property and as a result my PG&E got shut off. I could not put in my name or anyone elses because PG&E was requesting a legit lease from the landlord, but he would not give me one what he provided was a hand written lease stating my residence.

I moved into Heron Pointe with the expectation of living in a luxury apartment. But until this day it has not happened. The floor on my kitchen has not been fixed in living here almost two years. My bathroom sinks were both rusted, they have installed one new sink and I am still waiting on the second sink, besides there are cigarette stains all over the counter.


i just recently had my home burn on monday 6-15-15 due to the slumlord that i have/had. he told me from the day that i was going to move in on sep 1 2014 that there were some issues with the home including electrical problems, we continuesly told owner Sonny Wing Chan that we needed to have this issue fixed and he kepted saying he would send someone out but never did, unfortunatley i never called code enforcement, because i was scared of getting kicked out with 7 children.


My roommates and I moved out of our rental house at the beginning of July 2014. We received our security deposit but were not able to deposit it for a few weeks. When we finally deposited it I received a call from the bank saying the check did not go through due to insufficient funds. I emailed my landlord and requested a new check be sent right away. She sad she had cancelled the check but failed to notify us about it. She said we should be receiving our check by the end of October. By the end of October we still had not received our security deposit.


Hello my name is Eric salgado im 32 years old im a former marine and disabled veteran. I am 100% disabled and ive been harassed by the manager and was given an eviction notice on the fifth of September. I did not pay my rent because they did not inform me that the apartment above mine had its roof collapse. There is water damage visible through my ceiling. I had a dog that kept me sane and they threatened to evict me because of that too. I got my referral from the va hospital stating that my dog is my therapy dog.


Mutiple evictions from new managment. Nickle and dimeing tenants with threat of eviction. Safety issues. Many spanish speaking only are discriminated.
