Los Angeles


There have been on numerous accounts situations where the landlord has entered my premises without notification, and there have been situations where landlord has been notified of excruciating noise coming from apartment upstairs and has not been rectified. Also, inquiring on if landlord would be willing to accept section 8 vouchers, he was adamantly opposed to such idea.


To all those facing eviction, please be aware: the lawyers and courts can hurt you worse than your landlord. It happened to me…….


My landlord sold her duplex and needed me out of my rent controlled unit of 10 years in order for her sale to close escrow. She claimed my rent was more than I actually paid and posted 3 day pay or quit and subsequent court action. 



Landlord allows his assistant to enter my house and steal my personal belongings and now I'm getting a restraining order and he started harassing me two weeks iTafter I moved in on section and tenants was always yelling get the fuck out


Hello my name is Gabriela

Hi my name is Abigail. I've been a Property manager for 6 years. I was first a Tenant and after 9 months and 6 managers I applied for the job. Last year it was clear that the management company was overcharging. They refused to refund all monies owed and forced me into continuing as though nothing was wrong not just my property but quite a few in LA. It made me physically sick causing me high blood pressure and deep depression. I voiced my disagreement in the company's position. The began treating me quite differently trying to write me up for silly things.


the other week, I realized that there was a rat in my apartment. I called the company to tell them about it and they informed that if I wanted a pest control to come out that I would have to pay for it. They sent over the maintenance man to put rat traps throughout my apartment. I refused because I have a cat and I could not risk her getting injured because of the traps. I called the management company again, and they refused to hire a reputable pest control company.


Everyone in my rent-stabilized building in Los Feliz (Los Angeles) was served Ellis Act eviction notices on January 8, 2015.


My wife and I moved into our rental on 6/1/2014. There are two houses on the property.The landlord/owner lives in a large house at the front and we live in a small house in the rear. One day in early March
we came home to find a notice on the front gate
stating that a foreclosure auction was scheduled to
be held On March 30th. We asked the owner what
was up. He said not to worry, that it would all be
cleared up before then. Two weeks ago, the
landlord came to us and said there was an appraisal
