Two months ago, I moved into a condo that had previously been on the market for sale. Before I agreed to rent the condo, the landlord had said that the home was on the market for some time but he had just taken the home off of the market and didn't have intentions to sell. He asked for the first month, last month, and the security deposit prior to move in. Within a month and nine days of living within the unit, I received a call from the landlord informing me that the house would be for sale and that a realtor would be stopping by to see the place within half an hour.


I moved to Santa Monica in 1974 and have been renting my home ever since. In those 36 years I have lived in 16 different rentals: 10 apartments & 6 houses from Santa Monica to Santa Barbara to Daly City and finally Pacifica, CA.


So I rented this place with a roommate. and after having some disputes with her, she started lying and distorting my personal life to the landlord! Now the landlord refuses to renew my lease, AND is keeping my deposit!! When I try to confront the landlord, she calls me a liar for trying to explain things. I was served a 30 day notice for breaching the lease, even though the roommate breached the lease AND I'm liable for ANY damage throughout the apartment even though my roommate and I signed different leases.

Currently I am filing an Appeal Brief in the SF Appellate Division re: 37.9(b) owner occupied section of the Ord. I was evicted in June 2009 by a 30 Day "no cause" eviction notice. I challenged it cross MSJ were filed -- because I am told I am a just cause tenant 37.9(a) but Court ruled contrary to the Ord and state law.

“We paid our rent and we had a lease”.

Washington Mutual unlawfully locks a mother and her son, out of their home!

We paid our rent and had a 1 year lease until Aug 20, 2010, with the option to buy. WITHOUT A COURT ORDER, Washington Mutual locked us out of our home, unlawfully evicting a single mother and son. Without any relocation services, without giving the deposit back and we are now homeless.
