Apartments 1025, 1027, 1029 W12th St San Pedro California 90731 Complaint - Landlord / Owner withholds your deposit in bad faith! Plus much more!!

Review by Jake247 on 2010-06-18
Owner of this property would enter my unit without give proper notification. I would find out from my neighbors that he was inside. The landlord would always do construction outside, I would hear constant noise (jack hammer, saws, drills, etc). When I asked the landlord/ owner to repair and item such as a water heater he would replace the item with another used item! And it would only last a few more weeks. The landlord will NOT return your deposit!! I repeat will NOT return your deposit, no matter how clean you leave the apartment. You'll have to sue him for it to get it back. And even after you Win the case he will appeal it and when he loses the appeal and you request you money that's when the harassing phone calls from him begin!!! every transaction you have with the landlord, you need to get in writing (such as walkthroughs, installation of any devices, any repairs) he will lie in court and say he never approved anything. Beware of this person.

Entering your apartment without prior notification might be a matter to bring to the attention of police. You're right about getting things in writing. Hearsay doesn't do well in court.

If he is harassing you after a judgment has been entered, you should (1) file for a restraining order and (2) haul him back into court in the same case and let the judge have a little chat with him.
