SAN FRANCISCO – A man has filed suit against his former landlord over allegations that defective conditions at the rental property affected his living conditions and posed health, safety and fire hazards.
Martin Levison filed a complaint on April 23 in the San Francisco County Superior Court against McMahan and Does 1-20 alleging wrongful eviction and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 1, 2009, he entered into a lease agreement with the defendant to rent the lower unit of a Lobos Street, San Francisco property. He alleges the property was infested by rats, had holes in the floor and walls and other issues. The suit states that the city of San Francisco Housing and Vector Control found health violations at the property.
The plaintiff holds McMahan and Does 1-20 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to take steps necessary to repair defects on the rental property.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against defendants for compensatory, special, punitive, statutory and general damages; rental reimbursement; consequential and incidental damages; disgorgement; attorney's fees; costs of suit; interest; and further relief as the court may deem just. He is represented by Daniel Yockey of Macomber Yockey Law in San Francisco.
