Our eviction attorneys in Sacramento also represent tenants in eviction and unlawful detainer proceedings that have been filed without proper cause or for improper motives, such as retaliation.

Attorneys Who Know the Law on Poor Housing Conditions

Toxic moldSome apartments and other residential properties are just not fit to live in. Crumbling plaster, leaking windows and roofs, lead-based paint, natural gas leaks, asbestos, carbon monoxide, toxic mold and other poor housing conditions can be hazardous to one’s health.

Under the implied warranty of habitability, tenants have the right to live in a leased property that is safe and sanitary. Landlords who provide uninhabitable housing conditions should be held accountable for substandard living situations that put their tenants’ health in jeopardy.

Miller Injury Attorneys’ lawyers for landlord tenant disputes have developed a well-known reputation for successful prosecution of such actions and have obtained millions of dollars in settlements and jury verdicts for thousands of individuals affected by toxic mold in their rental properties.

Remedies Available to Tenants

If your landlord breaches the implied warranty of habitability by forcing you to live in defective or harmful property conditions, they may have to reimburse you for some of the rent you paid. In some situations, you may be able to make the necessary repairs and deduct reasonable repair costs from your rent. A landlord can also be liable under a negligence cause of action or a nuisance claim, if the conditions in which you are living substantially affect your use of the property or cause injury or damage.

If your apartment has become severely damaged by conditions including water leaks and/or mold, so as to make it uninhabitable, you may be able to leave the apartment and cancel the lease.

In addition, you may be able to recover the following types of damages:

  • Personal injury damages
  • Moving and relocation expenses
  • A refund of some of the rent paid while living in the property
  • The cost of cleaning damaged personal property and / or the value of destroyed belongings

Every situation is different. It is a good idea to talk with a lawyer first about poor housing conditions before taking action.

Rave Reviews from
Happy Clients

  • I had so many questions, concerns and he answered every one of them promptly and thoroughly.

    “John Miller is a phenomenal attorney. Mr. Miller went above and beyond what most attorneys do. I had so many questions, concerns and he answered every one of them promptly and thoroughly. I unfortunately was involved in a serious car accident that left me with a lot of medical bills and a ton of stress. When John was assigned to my case he spend endless hours (of his own time) preparing for settlement and then trial. Mr. Miller is very articulate, knowledgeable, kind and dedicated to his clients. I hope to never need a personal injury attorney ever again but if the circumstances ever presented themselves I would want John Miller by my side.”

  • I am so grateful to have found them.

    “From my initial phone conversation with Mr. John C Miller, Jr., I knew that my family would be in great hands. Mr. Miller and his staff were very professional, knowledgeable and caring. I am so grateful to have found them. I live in OC and at first I was concerned about the distance, but, he made it work and was able to help me and my family. I would highly recommend Mr. John C. Miller, Jr. and his staff.”

  • He was patient, kind and extremely professional.

    “Mr. Miller represented me on a mold case against a former landlord, and management company. He was patient, kind and extremely professional. Although my case wasn't one of the biggie gold mine type cases that many attorneys are looking for, he treated me with respect, collegiality and was able to help me get a settlement through mediation that seemed to be the best option for the quagmire of my particular case. One should always hold negative reviews on here in perspective: often people think their cases are slam-dunks, but as we all know, the legal system is overly complex and not as straight-forward as we all would like it to be. Often cases don't turn out as we'd like them to, but I felt that Mr. Miller was above board regarding the overall merits of my case and he tried to be realistic as to the outcome. I would recommend him and/or avail of his services again.”

Even at the most discouraging times, they were always there to listen and offer advice, and ensured that I never gave up hope. Thank you to Mr Miller and your wonderful staff! I am so glad that I came to you and your firm to bring a happy ending closure to this case!”
