Tenant protections are an increasingly common topic throughout the U.S., particularly in cities witnessing rapidly rising rents and predatory landlord behavior. Oakland, California, is one of the cities that has decided to move beyond conversation and take steps to protect local tenants. In November 2017, the Oakland City Council unanimously voted to expand its Tenant Protection Ordinance (TPO), which has provisions regarding rent control, habitability, evictions, and harassment.
If you live in Oakland and believe your landlord is violating one or more landlord-tenant ordinance, you need to speak with an Oakland tenant lawyer from Tobener Ravenscroft, LLP. A violation of a tenant protection law may be a misunderstanding and quickly remedied. However, your landlord may be intentionally violating your rights, and an attorney will help you correct the situation or seek compensation for your damages.
