: After I complained about the heater making me sick, the landlord had
their plumber reweld the 50 y.o.heater. This was despite the Gas Company
saying that as the baffles were shot, it should be replaced, not welded.
I have called the Health Department, but now my landlord is harassing
me with claims that I have caused damage to her place by "dropping
equipment, furniture, or jumping on the floor." does anyone know of
a good Los Angeles attorney who specializes in Landlord-tenant laws?
I am leary of just going through the phone book, or the Bar Association.
I prefer hearing from a happy tenant that their lawyer helped them. Any
First, realize that landlords say these crazy things all the time and
usually it doesn't pass the giggle test. Remember, in any proceeding
they would have the burden of proof.
As for LA attorneys, go (don't call) to your local Legal Aid or
Legal Services. Even if you don't financially qualify for assistance,
they usually are in touch with private attorneys who specialize
in L&T law.
