Because rent control sometimes ends or the rent can be raised when a tenant is evicted, landlords may abuse the right to evict tenants. Most cities that have rent control laws limit the reasons for an eviction. A landlord can’t give the tenant a 30-day or 60-day notice that the tenant must leave. The landlord must have a good reason for the eviction such as nonpayment of rent, breach of the rental agreement like pets that aren’t allowed, or illegal activity.

Alexander, through this process is now faced with numerous questions concerning his decision making. One being whether he should rent or live in the fourth story single bedroom apartment. If Alexander lives in the apartment he would be able to maintain the janitorial costs of the building saving him $1,800 a year. He would also be able to fix minor problems in the building without having to hire an outside contractor. Thus gaining him much needed firsthand experience in becoming a landlord. Although living in the apartment would also provide many hassles. They would receive complaints at home from their tenants. And if relationships were formed it would be much more difficult to remove your friends from your apartments rather than tenants you do not know.

Defendant SARAH MINER, owner, and operator of the Portola apartment complex, recently denied Plaintiff DARLAWILLIAMS, a former tenant, application to continue leasing her unit at the complex. Plaintiff subsequently brought suit against Defendant, alleging discrimination as the basis for her denial. The Plaintiff 's case against Defendant, however, is without merit. Defendant denied Plaintiff 's application because she received several noise complaints throughout her tenancy, disrupting the peaceful residential community. Furthermore, Defendant denied Plaintiff 's application due to her failure to keep her unit in good condition; resulting in substantial damage to the unit and approximately $3,500 in repair costs.
On December 31,2015, Ms. Miner agreed to rent unit #3 to Plaintiff, a former tenant of Portola complex (Exhibit 4). Plaintiff worked as a waitress at Danny’s restaurant and resided in unit #3 for one year before her lease expired on December 31, 2016. Although Plaintiff regularly paid rent in a timely fashion, during her tenancy, however, multiple noise complaints and damage sustained to the unit has subsequently lead to her renew lease denial on December 2, 2016. Moreover, Plaintiff never repaired the garbage disposal in her unit in accordance with her leasing agreement.
There is a fine line between just enough information and too much information. Score Assured, a British startup, crosses that line so far that the line is no longer visible. Tenant Assured, a software created by Score Assured, gives landlords the power access to prospective tenants social media accounts by sending them a link to the software. When a tenant "opts in", the software goes through all their social media accounts from public posts to private chats and scans through them to compile a report about the tentant that would help predict whether they would make a good tenant or not. Whether this practice ethical or not is the question that needs to be addressed. I would argue from a deontological perspective that it is indeed unethical not only because of its social effects but because it does not take into account the startup's duties to not discriminate and protect people's privacy.
On November 30, 2016, the Plaintiff, Darla Williams, submitted an application for renewal of lease for Apartment 3, 1731 Washington Place, San Diego, CA 92103 (hereinafter, Apartment).

Having the freedom to decorate and modernize can be seen as a luxury when there is a steady flow of income but this takes on an entirely new meaning when the cost is greater than the available income. When a rented property incurs damages or the appliances fail, the property manager is obligated to find someone to repair it as well as cover all necessary expenses. However, a homeowner must take that responsibility on alone and the cost of maintaining a house can be unpredictable. As for decorating, some changes cannot be made in a rented property which can be frustrating or inconvenient. On the other hand, to modify a house there may be unforeseen complications such as permits or building restrictions. The permits that an owner may need depend on what type of work they are having done, and some of the permits require a General Contractor’s license according to the Minneapolis, MN permits guide (Minneapolis City Council, 1997-2011). Homeowners that have set aside money for remodeling can find themselves in financial trouble when the updates cost more than what was expected. Homeowners and contractors have been known to make mistakes on projects that cause the expense of updating to go beyond the amount set aside. This can cause a homeowner to either have a financial downfall or leave the owner with unfinished repairs because of cost.
