I was the on-site manager. I was fired for fixing the apartments to gov code . I was doing my job. Owners were not in compliance with housing standards . Now they have sent people to break my windows they have been harassing me for months now. I have also been served with a three day notice. 


For 4 months I have been telling my landlord that my bathroom ceiling was leaking; he laughed it off or he would say I'm busy or I don't have time. 


My six-year-old daughter went in to the bathroom. I heard her scream. The roof came down on her. When I told the landlord he laughed, said it was just plaster. He said if I keep it quiet he would give me 1500, but I would have to move. I told him no so he gave me a 60 day notice.



I was homeless for almost a year and then spent the last year in an apartment in an extremely dangerous area to have a roof over my head. I have found a wonderful room to rent but am $200 short for a security deposit. I desperately need help. I just want to feel safe again! Please any help would be beyond appreciated. If it required being paid back, I would be 100% OK with that! Please I am praying endlessly for help!


We moved into our place a year ago, there were several issues like kitchen drawers missing or nailed shut. There are wiring issues, mold in our bathroom, the toilet is constantly leaking and now we are all sick. Ny 18 month old has bronchitis now. Code enforcement gave our original landlord 21 code violations. Instead of fixing anything our landlord sold the property and now the new landlords know about the violations and they have also not fixed anything. We desperately need to move into a new place, but will need help with the moving costs. Do I call a lawyer?


I was a tenant in foreclosed house that had habitability issues. The new owners (investors) came in and agreed to fix everything within a reasonable fair amount of time. They did however agree to fix the plumbing issues right away. I signed a lease with them that included they were going to fix the plumbing issues. I gave them rent and waited 45 days of promise after promise. No working kitchen sink made the house uninhabitable. I found the legal grounds to withhold rent and notified the new owner that I was exercising my rights under civil codes.


Hi my name is cindy and i live in the san joaquin valley and my landlord didn't tell me and my daughter that he had 101 health code violations and after i gave him the money we where moving our stuff in the apt he told us that we couldn't move are stuff in the apt because code enforcement would cut his throat if they found any one living in the apt because he they have to check first and so we asked when would code enforcement be able to check are room he said in 2 or 3 days so we waited and the 3 days it was 5 days later .
