In November 2010 the Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) was contacted by a client with a landlord-tenant issue. For three years the client was verbally harassed by the landlord and threatened with eviction without cause. Additionally the landlord failed at various times to provide heat, perform repairs, and he allowed contractors to enter the client’s apartment without prior notice. Despite numerous complaints to the landlord regarding harassment by the non-licensed property managers, the landlord failed to respond in an appropriate manner and violated numerous local and state ordinances.
Referred by the San Francisco Rent Board, the client contacted the Lawyer Referral and Information Service and was subsequently referred to panel attorney Mark Hooshmand.
