Thank you. I moved out on June 16th of this year. He somehow was able to get the rent for July ,August, and September. 5100 dollars Stipulating that I will not get the 1800 dollars put down in March of this year , unless I pay him 10 000 dollars for rents he feels is owed till April of Next year. I never signed an agreement till then. Only till September. How and when will I know if there is Good Faith on his part. Please understand, this place had no kitchen sink, he would not let me get a mailbox for residential purposes to insure my car etcetera. As well as no deadbolt locks on the entry. And a faulty security system and no window locks. This is why I contend there has been a breach. When and who do I look to for recourse. Small claims Jurisdiction is for claims under 10 000. The landlord seems to be painting outside those lines.
Code Compliance Investigation was filed in the County. They say it will take 30 days. I also have an Email to my Emergency Contact who paid him for July August and September saying I also must pay 10 200 dollars to recover my initial security deposit. Is this an example of "Bad Faith?" If they find he was not supposed to rent for a year in the first place, would that constitute a Jurisdiction outside of small claims? Thank you for your responses..
5th and final question sir..
Are Landlords who provide fire pits and outside grilles in California required by law to provide tenant with Fire extinguisher??
Would that not be under Californias' Warranty of Habitability? Safety and Compliance if said landlord denied request for applicable Fire extinguishing? As excuse to render lease in Breach?
