SAN FRANCISCO – A former tenant of a San Francisco property alleges the unit was illegal.
Jack Leeney filed a complaint on Nov. 20 in the San Francisco Superior Court against Albert Bracht and Does 1 through 10 alleging negligence and other counts.
According to the complaint, between February 2016 and May 2018, Leeney continually occupied defendants' San Francisco rental unit. The plaintiff alleges the unit is in a three-story building and he was renting an unpermitted fourth unit on the ground floor. He alleges the defendant did not disclose the unit was unpermitted.
The plaintiff holds Bracht and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly rented an illegal unit and failed to address the lack of habitability in the unit.
The plaintiff seeks judgment for general and special damages, prejudgment interest, and for such other and further relief as the court may deem proper. He is represented by Mark Hooshmand, Tyson Redenbarger and Laura Flynn of Hooshmand Law Group in San Francisco.
