ISLA VISTA, Calif. -

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.

One current resident says there are issues with hot water and on many days there's a shortage.

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.
