I was listening to talk radio while driving two days ago. An attorney was a guest who "represents both landlords and tenants" He was most certainly landlord leaning. A couple of calls that got to me: A man calls stating they lease a house and had come home to find the back door open and then later noticed pry marks around the lock. The door has no deadbolt. The stupid host stated "so what's your question" I got his question right away. California law requires all outside doors to have deadbolt locks and the caller asked if this was enough to break the lease as his wife was frightened. The "expert" basically stated he wasn't sure and never addressed the deadbolt issue or told the caller what he could do if the landlord didn't install a deadbolt. Another call. A man called stating he was calling on behalf of his complex. The complex had been sold and they were all given 60 day notices to vacate. The new owner wanted to upgrade the units and I'm sure re-rent at a higher price. The "expert" inquired about the area, stated there was no rent control and there was nothing they could do. Then he said this and I wanted to scream: "look at it from the landlords point. Any tenant can move with a 30 day notice and leave the landlord without a renter" WHAT THE.................!!!!!!! This complex was located in Alameda part of the San Francisco Bay Area with one of the highest rentals in the country if not the world. Any landlord would have an apartment rented before it was even vacated. No empathy for those poor people who I'm sure will struggle to find a place to live. Before someone replies, I get that there are horrible tenants who can thrash a rental. I don't know if insurance would cover these issues, but in the end, I'm sorry I think the owner comes out ahead. My rant is over.
