Tenants say evictions were unfair
Isla Vista apartment building embroiled in controvesy
Current residents and past tenants at an Isla Vista apartment building are mounting a list of complaints against the landlord. They range from controversial evictions, to the lack of hot water.
The property owner Platler Capital Management has not returned our call for a comment.
A tenants union representative says 13 small claims cases could be filed for up to $10,000 each.
A county ordinance requires landlords to offer compensation when a tenant is evicted for a construction project. Whether that was the case or not is in dispute.

They also say, after receiving permission to have a small dog, they have been given a notice to get rid of the pet or move out.
