Retaliation/harassment

Duane

The Washer an dryer are on our power for our unit. The landlord uses and does not reimburse use for use. She (landlord) purchased a new electric car and stated that she was going to install a power outlet in the garage and was asked if this going to be put on the same circut as the washer/dryer and she said she didn't know and when asking about the washer/dryer being on our power she went into a story about deserving the car and that she just had a baby.

My name is Ilene mother of two children, daughter 4, son 6, my spouse and my service dog. My current situation/status as of 02/20/2015, Homeless! After 5 long years of renting from a large apartment complex owned by a very large corporation, my family and I spent the holidays packing. In august of 2012 I had moved from one side of Coralaire Apts., to a larger 2 bd apt., in the same complex. I had noticed off the back that something just wasn't right, the smell, the discoloration of areas around and under kitchen sinks and certain walls.

The largest no fault eviction since the I Hotel in the 70's, or so we are told, enters phase 4. We have stood up in the face of corruption and flagrant speculation because we feel like greed and power have influenced the code enforcement process. Search google for 1049 Market 94103.

Manager wouldn't allow us to see apartment until day we were to move in so when I called owner, manager took year lease away and only allowed 6mo. Now asked to leave after 6 months and have no place to go! Disabled

I am a 54 year old man, separated from my wife, who has been living with and taking care of my 90 year old father for the past 2 years. I reside in the guest room, which is a small in-law apartment behind the laundry room (it is a 2 unit building and the laundry room is open to both apartments even though my father includes the in-law bedroom, living-room, and bathroom). In return for rent I buy food, make meals, clean the house, care for the garden, and accompany my father (or take him) to appointments.

Hi I am recently discovering how unlawful this country as well as my state and county I live in. About 4 months ago I tried to help a past tenant get Info about the uninhabitable dwelling of cockroaches and mold that her and her two year old son lived in. I gave her info to the local code enforcement agency after several request to our landlord were not being answered. 3 days later and after the landlord got the report she was immediately evicted. Mind you some of us that rent are considered low income or welfare dependent.

Currently I am in a position to where I don't know which way to turn.My life has not been the same.I have been fighting a case that never existed,2011 November around the 27th I recieved a summons from a guy.I never understood it because my rent was paid and what they were saying wasn't true. So I ended up going to see the manager bout the issue and I had the proof of the money orders but to nip it in the bud I tracked them down also.

I am a 51 year old female who resides at The Hub off Richards Blvd in Sacramento. I am a part time student and The Hub is Student Housing. Basically you rent a motel room for some amount (different rental amounts for different people for no good reason). I have lived here for 8 months and my rent is current. My lease is up in less than one week. Two months ago I have a friend who lives here as well, and she happens to be African American, when she got home from school her roommate accidentally sent her a text message the said "ewe..the nigger is home".

Pamela

Promised a "Smoke-free" property with a "zero tolerance" policy but management company refused to take assertive steps to get rid of smokers off and on for six years. I am disabled, severely allergic to secondhand smoke, but had it pouring into my unit through the heat vents. Now the unit is toxically contaminated, and must be cleaned for me to use the heat/air vents again. The management company ignores all my verbal appeals and my written letters. I need an housing attorney that can represent a low-income client. Thank you so much.
