Disagreements between tenants and landlords are no average dispute, mainly because it can threaten one's living situation. When a landlord harasses a tenant, the issue becomes all the more problematic. California tenants deserve honest communication, proper maintainence upkeep and, above all else, a safe living environment.
Unfortunately, as The Mercury News shares, this was not the case for one San Francisco woman who rented an apartment that she thought had a price too good to be true. To her shock, the apartment apparently came with a hidden cost: she later received sexually explicit text messages from her landlord to the point at which she did not feel safe. According to The Mercury, women across the Bay Area have made recent reports of harassment from landlords, resulting in a #MeToo movement occurring in a place many would have least expected.
