Tenant Protection Act (by Robert J [CA]) Posted on: Feb 14, 2024 5:30 PM

A squatter, unknown person in a rental, is given now 4 bites at the wheel, to defend themselves in a lawful eviction in the Los Angeles Kangaroo Court System.

They can file for a Protective Order, delaying an eviction up to 4 months.

They can have all filing fee's waved, up to and exceeding $1,000..

They are entitled to Free Legal Aid, lawyers, advisors and others.

They can and will file false police reports, with no fear of legal repercussions.

They can and will file a appeal to get another chance to get all owners, managers and trades men from coming within 300 feet of a rental.

Then they will file with Housing and Building and Safety a false Habitability claim, having violations issued of repair, that the owner has no right or ability to access the said property.

And so on......

I was in court yesterday for many hours. There were (7) seven major charges brought before the Court. Not eviction but a Family Criminal Court. The accusers were not my tenants, I was just the deep pocket owner.

I got to ask two questions of the accuser before I would be allowed to give my defense. So I asked:

Did they have a Female Attorney from Free Legal Aid handle things for them for a period of 3 to 4 months, who is different from their Current Mail attorney and Language interpreter?

The answer was yes! I had told the Judge that this current attorney was NOT the attorney of record. The judge said his name is on the document, so he is the attorney of record. I held up 4 months worth of communications, text message, letters, emails, pictures and other documents proving the accusations were not true. Jude said that's all hearsay and not admissible.

Second question I asked, do they know the difference between a "Landlord" and an "Owner". They did not!

Since I was not their landlord and did not set the rules for their tenancy, and I had given them 10 months to move out without paying 1 cent in rent, half of their case against me was lost.

During the show and tell portion of the trial, the Judge took evidence from the accusers, not me. But the squatter/tenant's interpreter needed some of my pictures because she couldn't translate things without reference.

I had been accused by the squatter and police of stealing valuables from the rental and keeping it as hostage. This picture showed a storage locker, around 15' x 20' filled with around 80 totes, 27 gallons with lids. All of the squatters stuff moved from the rental, buy everyone using my truck/trailer. And I had 3 months of texted messages. Saying, I need more boxes, come and pick up your trailer, we put another 12 filled totes on it, we will help you unload and put into our storage.

From being an accused of stealing tenants valuables and having he police on the squatters side, things were shifting. An hour plus listening to a distorted version of events..

I have/had over 200 documents on how the City and Squatters were seeking return of all rents paid to my tenant, not them, and

$25,000 relocation fund

$10,000 for abuse on a tenant

$ 5,000 more because 1 person was over 65 years of age.

I won this case on all 7 counts. I am ordering a copy of the courts transcript. I will return on the appeal and the other 2 court cases against me.

I have given notice to the Homeless Shelter, that has 40 beds, give to the City for $1.00 a year for charity work. Since there in no longer protections, and this shelter has never filed a single violation against me, I can not take the chance that opportunist will not uses these homeless people for financial gain. --47.155.xx.xxx

You are learning a lot about the court system, Robert J.

When all is said and done you will be one smart cookie.

Judges don't like people who aren't attorneys representing themselves, just like any other trade looks on do-it-yourself'ers.

I've read your stories over the years; if I were you, I would have considered changing something long ago (e.g. get an attorney who isn't combative, moving your property holdings elsewhere, get into a different business, get therapy, etc). I suspect you like banging your head against the wall because it feels so good. --108.201.xx.xx

Yes, you are so right Jay! The judge did not like that my spoken language was garbage and not in "Legal" terms.

So when I told the Judge that the "Free Legal Aid Attorney" in court was NOT the attorney of Record, he corrected me and said, "His name appears to today's forms -- there for he is the attorney of record"!

So after the Tenant/Squatter and Free Legal Aid attorney presented their case, the Judge said I could ask them a couple of questions. My first questions was, "Did the petitioner deal with a female attorney from Free Legal Aid for 4 months, before this attorney started to litigate this case". The petitioner said "YES"!

I then held up letters, emails, text messages and pictures--around 80 documents, showing I had been trying to resolve this case but instead the female attorney and they tenant/squatter filled a fraudulent police report against me. And they tried to extort $25,000 in relocation money and $10,000 for my bad conduct, doing what they asked from me, and $5,000 since 1 occupant was over 65 years of age.

The Judge wanted to know what bad conduct I was talking about. I explained I help them with boxes (totes) and moving them to a free storage place, that I pre-paid the first years rent. The judge asked them how many totes did they fill up. At first it was 20. Then another 30, and finally another 30 or so. So a total of 80.

I told the judge when they filed a false report, they said had stolen 2 totes with all of their valuables. Then the judge asked, "Did I take the totes/boxes". I said "Yes", but with their permission. I went on to further say, that after getting letter from the female attorney to return what I had taken. I returned to the rental home a put 12 boxes under the patio overhang and one squatter was calling the police that I shouldn't be there, as ordered by their attorney. Then I told the court that I dropped off 8 totes at the lawyers office and drove by a few days later seeing the boxes in their dumpster.

The Judge said, I don't know if he believes my entire story. I had the proof, so I switch to legal mombjumgo. I STATED THAT neither of us heard the Free Legal Attorney OBJECT! He he voiced any objection, they my proof could be entered into evidence. The judge agreed with me and asked if there were any objections. And so he believed my story to be much more creditable then theirs. --47.155.xx.xxx
