My landlord has not been depositing the checks I send to them for rent.
Unfortunately, the building was built after 1979 and you are not covered by the San Francisco Rent Ordinance. You may as well be living in Bakersfield.
My advice to you is the same I gave to my friend, buy property that doesn’t have tenants. Buy a condo or a house or an unoccupied building with a friend.
The legal, polite way to to handle this is to be polite but direct. The leak needs to be fixed and you want your money back.
I make $400,000.00 per year and I don’t want to pay a penny more than I have to. Am I protected by rent control?
