Contact us for a free consultation

What We Do:

Simply put, we file lawsuits against landlords. We sue Bay Area landlords for habitability issues such as: no heat, landlord or co-tenant harassment, cockroaches and bugs, mold, electrical issues and unsafe premises.

We have a proven track record of successfully suing landlords of any size. We file multiple lawsuits a month and have obtained multiple recoveries for tenants in excess of $250,000 for mold and habitability issues.

What Type of Issue Are You Having?

  • California has laws to protect tenants from various habitability issues such as:

    • Plumbing, heating and electrical issues;​

    • Requiring a clean and sanitary premises free from rats, cockroaches and other bugs and pests;

    • Adequate weatherproofing and waterproofing to prevent mold or structural damage;

    • Well-maintained floors, stairways, and railings;

    • Free from nuisances such as harassment from other tenants in the building;

    • Free from toxic substances such as mold, lead and asbestos.

  • Certain cities have even more protections: For example, under certain circumstances, San Francisco, Oakland and Hayward even allow your monetary damages to be tripled and require your attorneys fees and costs to be paid.

What We're Likely to Ask You
(this will help streamline our inquiry)

  • Have you already complained to your landlord about the habitability issues? (Landlords generally aren't liable for issues they don't know about.)

  • Have you documented your complaints in writing? (It's no surprise that landlords tend to "forget" about complaints that you've made if you don't have proof.)

  • Have you  contacted your local Department of Building Inspection and have they issued a Notice of Violation? (This isn't required for a lawsuit, but if the issues are bad enough and the landlord has ignored you, it's usually helpful. We can explain this and walk you through the process of doing so.)

  • Do you have any pictures or other documentation you can send us regarding the issues? (You can always email them to us at info@thereganfirm.com)
