Landlord Blues

This week's Tenant Trouble deals with a shady Marina landlord (we should point out that this behavior is not exclusive to the Marina) who is lagging on returning a deposit because of unpaid but never requested utility bills. You see, the tenants (husband and wife) shared a 2-unit building with the owner, who lived in the upstairs unit. The landlord said the tenants should pay for 2/3 of the utilities, but never sent a bill, even though the tenants requested them many times (unfortunately not in paper). Head over to the SF Appeal to see what advice Dave Crow, an attorney who specializes in San Francisco landlord tenant law, has to say. [SF Appeal/image via Shutterstock]
