Customer Question
I received a letter...

I received a letter today from police department saying that one of my rental properties might be being used for indoor cultivation of marijuana in a manner inconsistent with the requirements of Sacramento City Code section 8.132.030(B). The property is in CA. Marijunana is legal here but not legal to grow I think. I was not aware of the issue at all and I was given 7 days to fix the problem. I tried to contact the tenants without any success. It looks like the tenant subleased the house to someone else without telling me. I asked a process server to post a 24 hours request to entry form to the property and I will inspect the property on Friday. Here are my few questions: 1) What shall I do if I found marijuana in the property, how shall I dispose them? 2) Will the marijuana illegal grower tend to boobtrap the house which might make dangerous for me to enter? Can I ask a police to go with me?

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.
