Have a housing issue? Call Project Sentinel

One woman has been having ongoing issues with mold in the "expensive" townhouse she rents in Turlock and her landlord isn't fixing the problem she said, but rather spreading it throughout her home. Another man is having trouble getting back the $400 deposit he paid when he moved into an apartment 16 years ago, because the original landlord passed away and his next of kin doesn't want to pay it. Both of these landlord/tenant issues and more were brought up during a Housing Rights and Responsibility Forum hosted by Project Sentinel on Wednesday at Turlock City Hall.
