The Brinton Firm

Los Angeles Tenant Attorney

WELCOME TO THE BRINTON FIRM

THE BRINTON FIRM SPECIALIZES IN REPRESENTING TENANTS AND RENTERS ACROSS LOS ANGELES COUNTY.

We are tenant attorneys representing tenants across Los Angeles in any type of litigation involving tenant’s rights and landlord-tenant issues. We handle claims for business and residential tenants.

We don’t represent landlords, and we never charge tenants upfront for our services.

Our top rated tenant attorneys offer counsel and take appropriate legal action against landlords who fail to maintain your rental home, refuse to repair damage, allow the property to become infested with vermin, charge illegally high rents, or who otherwise violate state and laws that protect tenants. All tenants have legal rights, and our firm is here to help you protect them.

    POOR LIVING CONDITIONS/HABITABILITY CLAIMS

    Your landlord has a legal requirement to be sure all rental units are properly maintained.

    ASBESTOS AND LEAD PAINT
    When asbestos or lead paint is disturbed — for example, by construction workers or maintenance teams–the result can be catastrophic for tenants.

    Asbestos or lead paint debris in a rental property can contaminate your personal belongings and make you ill, both now and for many years afterwards. A significant remediation process is often necessary and must begin as soon as possible.

    If you are a Los Angeles tenant who has been exposed to lead or asbestos in your rental property, consider litigation as part of your strategy for dealing with the problem. Talk to a tenant lawyer right away for help understanding your rights and your options.

    INJURIES ON PREMISES
    Personal injury claims might seem complicated or overwhelming, especially when you’re facing medical costs and a painful injury. That’s why having a top rated attorney on your side is important!

    If you’ve injured yourself on another person’s property due to their negligence in maintaining their property, our tenant lawyers can help determine if you have a case against the property owner.

    ILLEGAL OR DANGEROUS UNITS
    Throughout Los Angeles County, many landlords decide to “create” their own apartment units, live-work spaces, or other residential dwellings by illegally converting warehouses, garages, or office space into housing. Illegal units are usually built without permits or any government inspection whatsoever, so they represent a significant danger to the tenant.

    Under these circumstances, the landlord generally has no legal right to collect rent from tenants. Additionally, the City or County of Los Angeles may red-tag the building, thus forcing all the tenants to move out on short notice. Starting litigation now can help you prevent a nightmare in the future.

    If you believe you are living in an illegal unit in Los Angeles, you deserve representation and a clear understanding of your rights. Talk to our tenant lawyers at the Brinton Firm today.

    FIRES AND FLOODS
    If your Los Angeles rental home has been destroyed due to your landlord’s failure to protect it from known hazards, you may be entitled to substantial compensation. Call our tenant lawyers for a free consultation about whether a significant fire or water intrusion is grounds for a lawsuit or other litigation.

      Common Tenant FAQ's
      What are habitability standards?

      Habitability standards dictate that you should live in a safe home, and that you shouldn’t suffer from infestations, nonfunctioning utility services, and other conditions that materially impact the tenancy.

      What rights do tenants have over landlords?

      The right to live in a safe and healthy home, with working utility service and free from infestations of vermin or other conditions which materially impact the tenancy.

      Can I sue my landlord for negligence?

      Yes, if your landlord breaches the duty to provide a safe home, allows conditions which create a material risk of fire, fails to repair serious problems, does not conduct adequate pest control, or ignores an order from the city or county to make repairs.

      What’s the fastest way to get my landlord to make repairs?

      Give the landlord notice in writing of all the conditions which need to be repaired. If they do not make repairs within 35 days, notify the Housing Department or Health Department.
