Other Practice Areas

Health & Safety Code Violations

If you are a tenant that lives in a unit which has violations from government agencies, you may have a claim against your landlord for collecting rent while these violations persist.  At NPN Law we routinely represent tenants who live in residences which have been violated by health, housing, building and safety departments.   We can help to subpoena these files from government agencies so that the tenant is aware of the problems with the rental unit.

Prior to renting a unit the unit must have a certificate of occupancy. Common examples of unpermitted units include: Converted garages, Converted closets, Unpermitted building additions. If you live in any of these types of units you may be entitled to a return of the rent that you have paid.

Retaliatory Eviction

It is illegal for a landlord to retaliate against a tenant for exerting their legal rights such as complaining to a government agency regarding the conditions of the tenant’s residence. If you have complained to your landlord or a government agency regarding the conditions of your residence and the landlord has thereafter sought to evict you contact NPN Law to protect your rights.   You may be entitled to damages for the landlord’s retaliation.
