Los Angeles Tenants' Rights Litigation
Tenants have certain rights under the laws that are designed to protect them from unpleasant, unsatisfactory or unsafe living conditions. When a landlord violates these laws and refuses to address the situation in spite of reasonable requests, a Los Angeles tenants' rights lawyer should be contacted. With the help of your lawyer, you can pursue a court order for the correction of the issues and, in many cases, receive financial compensation.
Legal Help with Landlord/Tenant Disputes
Our firm has tremendous knowledge of a wide range of tenants' rights issues. We take on individual cases, mass claims and class action suits involving:
Evictions and Lock-Outs
If your landlord has served you with an eviction notice of any kind, you may have valid legal defenses that protect you from having to move from your home. Even if a lock-out has occurred, it is possible that this was done illegally. R
When a landlord refuses to make necessary repairs and maintain a rental building to an adequate standard, this is not only unacceptable but may also be a serious health and safety problem. You have the right to take legal action and may be able to sue for back rent and to force repairs.
As a tenant, you have a legal right to the enjoyment of your home. When neighbors, other individuals, or government agencies act in such a way so as to disrupt your ability to live comfortably in your home, infringe on your property rights or interfere with public health, safety, peace and convenience, legal action becomes necessary.
Disabled Persons' Rights
A landlord may not discriminate against an individual with a disability in making a decision regarding renting a property, nor in any way once the property is rented to a disabled person. The disabled tenant also has the right to make necessary modifications to the building.
Injuries Relating to Housing Conditions
If you have been injured due to conditions present in your home, you may be able to take legal action. The presence of toxic chemicals or lead paint are examples of hazards in the home. We can review your case and determine the most appropriate course of action.
Injuries Caused by Owners' Negligence
If you have suffered an injury due to the negligence of your landlord, you have rights. Dangerous stairways, poorly maintained or lit walkways and electrical hazards are just some examples of unacceptable conditions that should have been detected and repaired by the landlord.
Mobile Home and Trailer Park Litigation
Tenants of mobile homes and trailer parks may be subjected to actions by management that are contrary to California law. These include illegal evictions, bans on friends or relatives from visiting the park, or the charging of "extra person fees" for children or parents.
