I’m covered under the Tenant Protection Ordinance
Under this ordinance you can sue your landlord for:
– Failling to provide a service,
– not completing necesary repairs, or
– exposing you and/or your famiy to excessive noise, contamination, mold, lead, and other hazardous materials while completing repairs in your unit.
Before you sue your landlord, you have to write a letter to inform them of your problem, let them know about your attempt to sue them, and give them 15 days to fix the problem. Here’s a template to guide you.
