Successfully Helped a Military Family with a Landlord/Tenant Dispute

May 2, 2012

A Marine and his family entered into a residential lease agreement. Soon after moving into the apartment, they discovered that the apartment was infested. The landlord was notified and the county’s health and human services agency confirmed the infestation. Despite spraying insecticide several times, the apartment remains infested, causing potential medical problems for the family’s young children, so the military family stopped paying rent. The family then faced an unlawful detainer action from the landlord. An attorney registered with the ABA Military Pro Bono Project volunteered to assist this family and successfully helped establish a positive settlement for the military family.
