Resources For Tenants And Landlords

The Law Office of William Stanger DOES NOT TAKE LANDLORD/TENANT DISPUTE CASES.

However, William “Bill” Stanger appreciates how difficult it can be for tenants (and landlords) to navigate California’s robust system of laws, regulations and agencies to get answers to their questions and assistance for their problems. Bill has compiled the following list of useful public resources that can help, or at least educate, tenants and landlords about their rights and duties:

State of California Mortgage Relief Program

The world of landlords, tenants, mortgage lenders and mortgagees is both rich with promise and fraught with risks. Whether you are a residential or commercial landlord or tenant – or a potential one – you should not be surprised to encounter trouble from time to time.

Not all landlord-tenant disputes require legal representation. For example, private individuals can and do find help directly from government agencies. However, such a dispute may uncover a need for more information.
