In addition to being involved in mass evictions that are displacing families from their housing at the Bay View Apartments in Alameda, people are also wondering if Matt Sridhar (aka Madhu Sridhar) who resides in a very fancy home in Saratoga on Deer Trail Ct., is a slumlord?
Is Matt Sridhar the owner of Bay View Apartments in Alameda a slumlord?

By Lynda Carson - August 12, 2016

Alameda - On August 8, tenant activists and renters protested against Matt Sridhar (aka Madhu Sridhar), Sridhar Equities, Inc. and the Bay View Apartments, for the proposed evictions and harassment of long-time Filipino families residing there.

This is not the first time that renters, tenant activists, and community activists have protested and rallied against Matt Sridhar (aka Madhu Sridhar) and the mass evictions taking place at the Bay View Apartments.

In an obscene effort to defend and promote the mass evictions taking place at the Bay View Apartments in Alameda, Matt Sridhar sent an email to the Alameda City Council, stating: “We have a solid reputation of renovating projects and improving the neighborhood. We specialize in turning around dilapidatedproperties.” The email made the news, and is in total contradiction to the allegations made in a 2/25/2015 lawsuit against Matt Sridhar and his companies Sridhar Equities Inc / SE-SF, LLC, by Dwayne C. Robinson, of San Francisco.

In addition to being involved in mass evictions that are displacing families from their housing at the Bay View Apartments in Alameda, people are also wondering if Matt Sridhar (aka Madhu Sridhar) who resides in a very fancy home in Saratoga on Deer Trail Ct., is a slumlord?

According to public records, Matt Sridhar’s companies called Sridhar Equities Inc / SE-SF, LLC was sued on 2/25/2015 by Dwayne C. Robinson who ran a barber college in one of the properties owned by Sridhar Equities at 4912 Third Street, in San Francisco.

In the lawsuit that was filed, Dwayne C. Robinson alleges that he was forced to vacate the unit he was renting involuntarily from Sridhar Equities. A sewer leak that occurred in the unit above the barber college on July 2, 2014, that flowed down through the ceiling, contaminating a substantial portion of his rental unit with sewer water and fecal matter, was not repaired.

Allegedly, according to the lawsuit Robinson reported the sewage problems to Sridhar Equities, but Sridhar Equities failed to make the necessary repairs to remedy the situation.

Additionally, making matters worse, allegedly a fire erupted in the same building on August 2, 2014, in a portion of the building under the exclusive control of Sridhar Equities (Matt Sridhar), and in the suit it alleges that such fires do not occur in the ordinary course of events unless the entity in control of the area is negligent. As a result of the fire, Robinson could no longer keep the barber college in the building, and had to move involuntarily, and sued Sridhar Equities for damages due to negligence, for being a nuisance, and for breach of contract.

Despite the allegations in the lawsuit brought by Robinson against Sridhar Equities Inc / SE-SF, LLC (Matt Sridhar), according to public records Dwayne C. Robinson and his barber college ran into some other problems with the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education, Department of Affairs, in the State of California.

Additional public records in California reveal that Sridhar Equities, Inc., entity number C3253347, has a status that has been active since 11/03/2009, and that the status of Matt Sridhar’s (aka Madhu Sridhar) company known as SE-SF LLC, has been active since 03/08/2012.

According to public records listed in Nevada, Matt Sridhar (aka Madhu Sridhar) has other companies known as Sridhar Real Estate Contra 1, L.P. / General Partner - Sridhar Equities LLC, and both companies are listed as being active.

Matt Sridhar is also the founder of Timi Properties.

Matt Sridhar and his company Sridhar Equities Inc., did not respond to my request for a reply in regards to the lawsuit filed against them by Dwayne C. Robinson on 2/25/2015, alleging slum like conditions at 4912 Third Street, in San Francisco.
