Lawsuit Seeks Court Intervention to Make Properties Habitable
Thu Jan 16 2014
Tenants Bring Class Action Lawsuit Against JD Homes Rentals Over Unsafe Conditions
On January 9, Tenants Together and their allies filed a class action suit against notorious Central Valley landlord, JD Homes Rentals. The lawsuit seeks immediate court intervention to ensure that substandard conditions in the thousands of units managed by JD Homes Rentals are repaired and the properties made habitable. A press conference announcing the lawsuit was held near the Fresno Water Tower.

Among the allegations, the complaint details JD Homes' business practices of failing to maintain properties, leaving tenants with roaches, leaking plumbing, defective wiring, and a plethora of other unsafe conditions. Requests for repairs are often ignored for months, and sometimes years. When repairs are made, the complaint alleges, they are merely cosmetic and fail to address the health and safety issues, and JD Homes often retaliates against tenants who complain to authorities.
