San Francisco tenants who love their apartments and begin to believe “there’s no place like home” are those most in danger.
Your relationship with your landlord will change if you complain. The next time you see him he will have donned his crown, his tights and his cod piece.
Selling the house devoid of tenants is ideal for for staging and marketing it for maximum profit.
You need to gather evidence that your partner moved into the unit at the same time you did, despite not being named on the lease.
If you move because you found out you live in a dangerous neighborhood, you will, technically, be breaching your lease.
Read the lease as broadly as possible to see if any language applied to removing the furniture could be used to evict you for breach of contract.
Landlords become obsessed with the inherent power bestowed upon them by their position. When the greed gets psychotic, the psychotics torment their tenants.
You make your landlord uncomfortable. He knows, at least subconsciously, that he did nothing to deserve the rent increase he’s requesting.
This is a silly example of a landlord exerting dead hand control.
