If the court issued an order requiring the landlord to take specific action (repair or remedy issues with the unit), and the landlord has failed to do so, you need to make a motion to the court asking for "enforcement of a court order and sanctions."

You can do this by simply filing a motion in the same case as the one in which the court issued the existing order, check with the court clerk when you file, let them know it deals with "habitability" of the unit, most of these kinds of matters are heard on an expedited basis, so they will give you an earlier hearing date. If they do not have a prompt hearing date, you will want to make an "ex parte" motion, the court clerk will give you information on your court's ex parte calendar (where you file the motion with only 24 hours notice to the landlord and appear in court on the same day).

Even if they filed writ of possession
Real Estate Lawyer: CalAttorney2, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

Did the court issue a judgment of possession?

(I want to make sure I understand what is going on - did the landlord get a judgment giving them possession, or did you get a judgment telling the landlord they had to make repairs?)

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
