Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Would you happen to have a direct reference to any law that requires window screens?
I have reviewed the CA Civil Code and Health and Safety Code regarding habitability requirements and it only states this:
(a) A dwelling shall be deemed untenantable for purposes of Section 1941 if it substantially lacks any of the following affirmative standard characteristics or is a residential unit described in Section 17920.3 or 17920.10 of the Health and Safety Code:
(1) Effective waterproofing and weather protection of roof and exterior walls, including unbroken windows and doors.
It states nothing about window screening..
If you can tell me what city you are in, this might be a local ordinance..
Just to let you know, I have still been researching and can find nothing under CA State law that requires window screens. So if a law exists, it must be a local ordinance so I would need to know your city to look into that..
