Here is a timeline of my experience in this house:
10-16-09 - We find this awesome 5bd/2ba house in the inner richmond for rent, 5 people rent & move in. All are equal co-tenants (there is no "head" tenant). No pest problems with the house are reported by any of the tenants.
12-1-10 - One of the residents puts in a 30 day notice. Her cat was clean but we had seen some some fleas so as a precaution I flea bombed her room after she moved out and then had the carpet professionally cleaned.
12-18-10 - A person responds to our CL ad claiming ". I am really easy to live with, responsible, cheerful, clean, reliable, and mature. " We later learn none of this is true- she is rude, unpleasant, and worst of all completely filthy. (I will be happy to show photos of the mess she left after moving out)
1-11 - The new (problem) tenant moves in, everyone is taken aback as she completely takes over the living room and dining room with her "art supplies" turning a clean house into her own personal filthy art supply storage warehouse.
2-11 - Mid february, the new tenant with the pile of art supplies writes me a letter (even though we are equal co tenants, and I am not the landlord) which says she thinks she has bed bugs in her mattress, asks me to pay to have an inspector come, and further accuses me of having previous knowledge, even though no one else has ever claimed to see one before (before or after). I tell her no one else has ever claimed to see them before, I tell her I am not her landlord and I recommend that she contact the landlord. She contacts the landlord, he sends a professional exterminator, and they came to the house and sprayed her room at her request.
5-1-11 - 3 months pass with no further pests reported. A separate tenant moves out, and when we try to find a replacement, the landlord decides we can't sublease any more. The only way we can stay was to have the house be in one person's name, and have the other tenants sublease.
5-1-11 - I signed a new sublease agreement with the tenant with the art supplies who had claimed to have pests 3 months earlier. She never requested a further treatment or claimed to see any pests after 2/11. In the lease it said she continue to store her art supplies in the dining room, but needs my permission to store other items.
5-26-11 Another tenant complains that the tenant with the art supplies is storing her cat's litter box in the dining room, and that the box has not been cleaned in weeks. The cat box is completely disgusting, not only has the litter solidified into one huge solid chunk from all the urine, but there is a thick layer of poop on top, and the poop is covered in mold. It is completely disgusting, and made the whole house smell.
5-26-11 I write a letter to the tenant with the litter box and art supplies telling her that someone has complained about the cat box being filthy, and asked her to clean it or not store it in the dining room any more.
6-1-11 My letter was ignored, 4 days later the problem tenant had not cleaned her disgusting moldy litter box. Everyone was upset and disgusted with her, but she did not care, she would just lock herself in her room and ignore the problem she was creating with the smell and mold for everyone else.
6-1-11 I give the Problem Tenant a 3 day notice that she is violating the storage clause in her lease by storing the litter box in the dining room without my permission. The 3 day notice informs her that she has 3 options:
-Not store the litter box in the dining room
-Be sued and evicted as an unlawful detainer
6-7-11 - For over a week the problem tenant had ignored our requests to not store the litter box in the dining room. She did not clean it. She ignored the 3 day legal notice. An unlawful detainer eviction suit was filed with the San Francisco Superior Court against the problem tenant.
6-12-11 - Problem tenant moves out in a hurry after realizing she is being legally evicted.
7-13-11 - After the official sheriff's eviction a new tenant moves in.
10-1-11 - No one in the house before or after the problem tenant on 2/11 has reported any pests. Any future reports of pests will be responded to immediately with a call to the landlord, who will promptly schedule a visit from the exterminator.
This website's posting guidelines state "Please do not report bedbugs unless you have a good reason to believe they are present in that specific place. We prefer actual sightings whenever possible."
Notice that the following report was written nearly 3 months after she moved out.
No one in this house has any reason to believe we have any pests. No one who lives here believes the following report is anything more than a personal attack by a bitter, disgruntled former tenant, angry about being evicted due to her own disgusting habits & negligence. This is clear from her first sentence labeling us "a revolving door of transient people and it is perpetually filthy."
The only filthy transient person to live here was the person who wrote the following anonymous report:
