If you are facing eviction or harassment, if your rent has been raised beyond the legal limit, or if your landlord is refusing to make necessary repairs, you have rights.

  • You have the right to insist that ALL communications between you and your landlord or property manager are in writing. 
  • Landlords and property managers must provide you with written 24-hour notice prior to entering your unit.
  • Under California state law, tenants with a disability have the right to request reasonable accommodation.
  • It is against the law for landlords/managers to ask about your legal status and/or use your legal status as a tactic to evict you or intimidate you. 
  • You have the right to prevent Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from entering your home unless they have a warrant signed by a judge. If ICE attempts to enter your home without a warrant:
    • Do not open your door. 
    • You have the right to remain silent.
    • Document the time, location, and what happened.
  • Do not sign anything you do not understand. Request notices in the language you most understand.


SAJE hosts a Tenant Action Clinic on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. Our staff is available from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. to answer your questions and help you understand your rights. We also have attorneys present to advise you.

You can either come in person or call (213) 745-9961. SAJE is located in South Central Los Angeles at 152 W. 32nd Street.

Help through the Tenant Action Clinic is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. You DO NOT need to make an appointment. Please bring all your relevant documents, including any eviction notices, three-, 10-, 15-, 30-, 60-, or 90-day notices, and any notices you have received from a government agency or the property owner.

For the safety of the community and SAJE staff, we require proof of up-to-date COVID-19 vaccinations.
