Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

It's a violation of the Fair Housing Act for your landlord to discriminate against you because you or someone living with you is disabled. If there were some rule about not having excessive "traffic" at your home, you can submit documentation from a doctor that your son is disabled and needs assistance from IHSS, along with a request from you that they make a reasonable accommodation by allowing you to stay. It is reasonable to let people come to your home to care for someone who has special needs. That could be an option if they don't know your son is disabled, but it sounds like they do.

Another option is to file a Complaint with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing.

http://www.dfeh.ca.gov/Complaints_ComplaintProcess.htm

You could also contact a local tenant's rights organization to see if a lawyer there will send a letter to the landlord or management company on your behalf. But you're right - they cannot evict you in this situation.

If you have any questions or concerns about my response, please reply WITHOUT RATING. It's important that you are 100% satisfied with my courtesy and professionalism. Otherwise, please rate my service positively so I am paid for the time I spend answering questions. If you are on a mobile device, you may need to scroll to the right. There is no charge for follow-up questions. Thank you.

They said residents have put in writing that I have excessive traffic coming over here. I have 3 different IHSS (In Home Support) workers that come over to assist me with daily living issues. I have a friend whose grand daughter will bring over food once a month and a 34 year old son who is an alta regional client and disabled he will come by 1xs a month to get his money and leave. These people are making up lies saying I party at night when I am home alone. I do not drink, do drugs or even smoke ciggs. I feel as though I am being discriminated against. I was given this 30 day notice the 28th of sept. Management said they would get right back to me about setting up a meeting to confront me with their concerns. I waited and never heard a thing back. When I did call last Fri she (manager) told me she would get back to me. Today I called and was told the residents who complained were too afraid to confront me for fear of my son and all the people coming in and out! I would rather discuss this on the phone

Ok.

They can't kick you out because you have visitors due to your son's special needs. You can request a reasonable accommodation and file a Complaint. Or, as I said, you can have a local attorney contact them on your behalf.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
