San Francisco Landlord Dispute Attorney

The house or apartment you rent is your home, and if you have been discriminated against, harassed, mistreated, or evicted illegally by your landlord, it can make your life exceptionally difficult. It’s important to know, however, that you have legal rights as a tenant, and an experienced San Francisco landlord dispute attorney can help you protect them. 

Your Home

San Francisco is one of the most expensive cities in the nation to live in, and if you’re being treated unfairly by your landlord – or the home or apartment you rent is in jeopardy – it amounts to far more than an inconvenience. If your landlord is attempting to illegally raise the cost of your rent-controlled apartment, is attempting to force you out altogether (without legal cause), or refuses to address uninhabitable conditions – it’s time to take legal action. 

Seeking Compensation

Depending upon the circumstances of your landlord dispute, you may be able to seek compensation, including:

  • A full or partial refund of the rent you’ve already paid
  • The cost of relocation
  • The cost of moving, any related medical expenses, or other out-of-pocket costs to you
  • Loss of use of your rent controlled home
  • Any associated lost wages
  • The cost associated with your property being damaged or destroyed 
  • Any bodily harm to you
  • Emotional distress, including increased anxiety, fear, and/or the onset of depression

Speak with a dedicated landlord dispute attorney about your rights and your rightful compensation. 

Common Tenant Concerns

Common legal concerns that tenants tend to face (and/or need legal guidance in relation to) include:

  • Responding to landlord harassment
  • Dealing with a landlord’s failure to make necessary repairs
  • Determining if you need to file a lawsuit against your landlord
  • Determining whether it’s advisable to exercise your legal right to repair and deduct in response to your landlord’s failure to make required repairs (which can be ill-advised)
  • Preparing to move forward by suing your landlord in small claims court 

The fact is that if you are having an issue with your landlord, it can affect your life in surprisingly negative ways, and ignoring the issue is unlikely to make it go away – or to help your situation. Reaching out to a dedicated San Francisco landlord dispute attorney earlier rather than later can help rectify the situation you’re dealing with – while protecting your legal rights.
