While the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated our already problematic housing crisis in Sacramento, more & more tenants are being harassed, threatened, & retaliated for exercising their Rights! Our committee of ACCE leaders believe that to ensure safe & sustainable rental units there needs to be a change in the way tenants connect with Code Enforcement when property managers & or landlords are refusing to maintain the property in Safe & Healthy conditions. ACCE Leaders have launched our own ACCE tool to support other Sacramento tenants in getting their units inspected by Sacramento Code Enforcement. This Tenant Self Check form was developed for tenants to be able to easily report their rental units & be supported as property owners are already supported by Code Enforcement, city staff & the California Apartment Association. We aim to identify trends in slumlord tactics and work with the City and County of Sacramento to hold these Slumlords accountable.
If you are a tenant who needs immediate help and/or wants to learn your RIGHTS as a TENANT, attend our weekly Defend Your Homes Workshop on Thursdays at 6:30pm. Register here.
