You Deserve A Safe Place To Live

Housing code violations can cover a wide range of issues. The fact is, your landlord has a duty to ensure that your rental unit is a healthy and safe place to live. When clients come to us at the Law Office of Paul Mankin, they are often looking for a lawyer because of repeated neglect by their landlord.

Even seemingly simple repairs can add up quickly. Maybe you are concerned about peeling paint. Perhaps you've seen several cockroaches running around. Or you could have a faucet or toilet that won't stop running. Other issues include:

  • Leaking roof or ceiling
  • Holes in windoews or doors
  • Not having heat

Many of our clients don't have just one of these issues. Often, clients come to us because of repeated neglect of multiple areas of their unit.

Taking On Your Landlord

It can be a daunting task to contact an attorney about your landlord. You may be afraid of eviction or adverse action taken against you. However, it is illegal for a landlord to take action against you for requesting repairs.

We work with clients in San Diego and Los Angeles to ensure they have a safe, comfortable place to live.

There is no number of housing code violations that is acceptable. If your landlord is ignoring your requests to fix problems, you may need an attorney to help.
