General court 01

SAN FRANCISCO – A tenant alleges she had to involuntarily vacate her San Francisco unit because of conditions that interfered with her use and enjoyment of the property.

Jennifer Tamez filed a complaint on Feb. 4 in the San Francisco Superior Court against Raymond Owyang, Janie Owyang, Kenneth W. Owyang, et al. alleging nuisance and other counts.

According to the complaint, between May 1, 2009, and Nov. 29, 2018, Tamez leased defendants' property located on Vallejo Street, San Francisco with a monthly rental payment of $940. 

Plaintiff claims during the course of her tenancy, she allegedly endured numerous dangerous, defective, and disruptive conditions at the property that were not adequately remedied as agreed in the lease agreement, which significantly interfered with her use and enjoyment of the property. 

As a result, plaintiff claims she could no longer continue to reside at the property and she was compelled to involuntarily vacate her unit in November 2018.

The plaintiff holds Raymond Owyang, Janie Owyang, Kenneth W. Owyang, et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly engaged in intentional and intimidating conduct, including retaliated against her, for her complaints about the conditions of the building.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for general and special damages, restitution, prejudgment interest, attorney's fees, costs of suit and such other and further relief as the court may deem just and proper. She is represented by Mikayla Gow Kellogg of Kellogg & Van Aken LLP in San Francisco.
