(10 News)   In California, $1,200 a month in rent will get you a rodent infested, mold filled apartment with a broken heater, clogged sinks, non locking windows and nonfunctional electrical outlets, and you better not complain or immigration might get involved   (10news.com) divider line 296

Wow, that's rough.  I have a 1050sq ft 2/1 SFH with a 1-car garage and a yard about three times the size of the house in a good neighborhood.  I pay $1400.

Moving, though, to the west side into a 1-bed with a loft, a 1-car garage and a small (15x20) yard.  It'll be $1600, but it's 4 miles from the beach and, more importantly, about 2.3 miles from my favorite bar.

A local couple is at the center of a lawsuit that claims they abused their power as landlords.

Rosas and his mother pay $1,250 a month in rent.



Ummm, what?

Sounds just like the housing situation here in Connecticut. I'm about to buy a house, and will be paying about $100 a month less on my mortgage than some friends of mine who rent a crappy apartment, and that's even factoring in utilities. Unless you're on Section 8, renting around here is both a waste and a joke.

you rent to people, you take care of their shiat. You don't care about their immigration status. You upheld your end of the bargain as long as they're upholding their end.

Every time I've walked out into the cold here in Columbia, MO., I've thought, "Sheesh, it'd be nice to live somewhere warm during the winter. Or all year long."

Then I remember what cost-of-living expenses are like on the coasts and say, "MISSOURI IS GREAT!".

THIS, is diversity:


The 2010 United States Census reported that Oceanside had a population of 167,086. The population density was 3,961.8 people per square mile (1,529.7/km²). The racial makeup of Oceanside was 109,020 (65.2%) White, 7,873 (4.7%) African American, 1,385 (0.8%) Native American, 11,081 (6.6%) Asian (3.4% Filipino, 0.7% Japanese, 0.7% Vietnamese, 0.6% Chinese, 0.4% Korean, 0.2% Indian), 2,144 (1.3%) Pacific Islander, 25,886 (15.5%) from other races, and 9,697 (5.8%) from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 59,947 persons (35.9%). Among the Hispanic population, 31.3% Mexican, 1.0% Puerto Rican, and 0.4% Salvadoran.

Serious question:

Wife and I just moved to LA a few weeks ago. We're staying with a friend near where I work until we can find a permanent place. And negotiating neighborhoods and rents is like Chinese algebra (in some cases LITERALLY, since some real estate listings are actually written in Chinese).

Can a native-type person let me know where I should be looking to live?

Difficulty:

1) Job is in City of Industry. Wife's job is in Redondo/Hermosa. Yeah, I know.
2) Need a single-family house with fenced yard, as we have a rescue Greyhound.
3) I can't live where there are bars on the windows. I want my parents to come visit.
4) $2,000-$2,200 would be a good rent window.
5) At least 2 bedrooms.

I don't mind a bit of a commute. Wife and I both have cars and solid work.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Simple. Send the landlord a certified letter (costs about six bucks) stating that all future rent monies will be held in an escrow account until such time that all required repairs are satisfactorily completed. Then make sure to actually deposit every cent of the rent into that escrow account, on or before the date it's due. This shows the court that you, as a tenant, upheld your end of the rental agreement, and that you gave the landlord an opportunity to make good also.

Okay, maybe its the (evil) lawyer side of me talking, but I kind of can see where the LL is coming from.

Yeah, it was probably a threat.  But OTOH, I could sort of see the LL actually honestly saying:  look you need to pay the rent or figure out someway we can come to a mutual arrangement.  If you involve the courts, your immigration status could come up and I know that's what you want to avoid.

The meaning or motive could be better ascertained from the way the LL said it, but unfortunately for him, its in a phone text, so there is no tone of voice.

The jack-hole landlord is a lawyer.  I'm sure if he threatened them with "deportation", he would claim the agreement, if it is worth the paper it is written on,  to be null.

CBSB:

I used to have a brother who was a radar genius. Top secret clearance (probably above that). Decades ago, he lived in Arizona and every so often he would get long-term contract offers from California firms. He never took them up but when he adopted two kids, he got offers that would "make sure he and his family were well taken care of out here in California". The pay was substantially higher than anything he got in Arizona. So he flies out to look the place over.

Those long-term generous offers would have kept him and his family in rags due to cost of living. Farking bastards were going to lock him in to wage slavery with two kids and wife.

Let's be honest here.  If your immigration status is not of the legal persuasion, then people have you by the short and curlies.  You will work for less, (illegally), and rent for more. (illegally).

In a just-filed lawsuit, Rosas said his landlords have let the apartment become uninhabitable, and when Rosas started withholding rent, he said he got a text from Golchin that read, "It is in your best interest not (to) get the courts or sheriff involved. They sometimes call immigration."
"They're taking advantage of my client's immigration status to rent them a piece of filth," said Rosas' attorney Dan Gilleon.
On the phone, Golchin told Team 10 the text was "not a threat. I was helping them out by giving them information. The idea of a threat is appalling."


What a sleazy piece of shiat.

Anyways, I live in a great neighborhood in San Diego in a 2br house with a washer/dryer and a garage and pay $1650.  Who the fark wants to live in Oceanside?

Paying for things is for minorities? Geez, as a hetero, average weight Caucasian female in her late 20's, I'm doing it wrong.

Not to mention... MAYBE MOVE OUT OF LA. You can rent a nice 3bed house in Sacramento and the suburbs for $1,200 a month. I had a large 1bed with a walk in closet in a nice neighborhood for $725. So not all of California sucks for rent. Just the lower third.
