Hello...I have been renting from the same people for several years. I have had to deal with loud nieghbors for most of the time. I live in a unit that is directly below my manager. He ignores my complaints about the other tenants. I recently received an email from my landlord threatening eviction if I continue to complain. They are basically saying that I need to put up with the noise or I will be kicked out. That is not fair! The neighbors are loud all hours of the night & day. I never get any peace here. I am a college student taking online courses.


OMG! DO NOT RENT from Barry Blue Junior/Blue Properties! I went to view the apartment, noticed that there was no smoke detector (which is required by CA Building Code) and told them they needed to put one in before I signed the lease. They took 2 months to put a $10 smoke detector in. Then, once I moved in, I found out that the heater was broken (which is illegal according to CA Civil Code to rent out an apartment without a working heater). It took maintenance 6 months to fix the damn heater (7 different trips out to my apartment before they could get it fixed).

Mosbrucker & Foran

The law firm of Mosbrucker & Foran specializes in lawsuits involving wrongful evictions, Costa-Hawkins disputes and other excessive rent increases, illegal rental units, landlord harassment, and substandard living conditions. 

Most of the work we do for tenants is on a contingency fee basis. This means we don’t get paid until and unless you get paid, in which case we get a percentage of the total recovery. This only applies where the tenant is initiating a lawsuit in Superior Court.
