I Complained For 4 Years That No Repairs Or Upgrade Was Being Done To My Apartment. I Renewed Year After Year And Not Even A Steam Cleaning For My Carpet. Many Leaks Ruined My Carpet And I Tore It Out Because It Smelled Like Mold. I Asked For A Wole Year That They Lay A Floor Down Because My Dinning Area Was All Cement After I Tore The Ugly Ruined Carpet Out. Finally They Did And Not Even 2 Weeks Later A Letter Was Posted At My Door. 60 Day Lease Termination. They Were Not Going To Renew Me. On Top Of Everything My Lease Did Not Expire Until July 17, 2008 But They Are Evicting Me Because They Have Been Remodeling The Units And The Complex. They Are Not Allowing Me The Remainder Of My Lease Because They Have A Schdule Date To Remodel My Unit And Lease At A Higher Rent In July. I Thought I Had The Right And Obligation To Fullfill My Lease. But They Said If The Community Is Remodeling During My Lease Term They Have The Right To A 60 Day Lease Termination In Order To Remodel And Re-lease To A New Tenant. It States In My Lease That If I Am Inconvienced Because Of Complex Restoration And Remodeling Projects Due To Dust,dirt,noise,no Parking, That A Tenant Is Deemed From A Landlord Serving A Eviction Notice Pursuant California Law. I Had To Park In The Street And I Was Very Inconvienced For Almost 2 Years During Their Re-construction....what Can I Do?

You really need to consult with a lawyer well versed in the rent ordinances of your area if you question the legality of what you've been told...

Many areas offer free or low cost legal advice for renters...

I hope it works out for you... don't delay... time is not on your side.

When someone I rented from years ago didn't pay my deposit back I found a legal guide for renters at one of the local bookstores. I made a photocopy of the page on deposit returns and sent that off.

What do you know, I got a check the next week for the full amount (after 30 days they are legally obligated to return the full amount. Any damages or reasons for keeping a portion must be sent to you in writing within 30 days or they can't take any out.)

Sorry this happened.

Dawn

Default The Title Case Troll Strikes Again!!! :) :) :)

Folks, you've just been visited by the Title Case Troll, late of the Arizona section. You can spot the OP's postings by the fact that it's always a new account with only 1 post, his "first" post, every single word is capitalized, and the post is always outrageous.

I just thought I'd warn you that this person's only interest is in getting you all wound up. See this post for and this other post for examples of the Title Case Troll's previous work.

So welcome to Los Angeles, Title Case Troll. Please move along now.

Well Darla, how about you turn the tables on the big bad landlord, and buy your own apartment complex? Good luck on the switcheroo!
