Are You Entitled To A Rent Reduction?
Under California law, if certain conditions are not met, you may be entitled to a rent reduction or have a clear defense when facing eviction.
In some instances, some issues that do not rise to the level of untenantability may be issues that you can pursue in small claims court for money back as rent reduction or if you had to spend money to correct a problem that should have been covered by the landlord. We can help you prepare for small claims court, represent you before a rent board or help you negotiate with your landlord about these issues.
