How can I get my landlord to make repairs to my San Francisco apartment?
According to the San Francisco Rent Board, tenants should notify their landlord when repairs are needed in their San Francisco apartment or in the common areas of the building.
Tenants should notify their landlords, building manager or a property management company when repairs are needed. The best way to notify your landlord to request repairs is by both a telephone call and a letter.
When requesting repairs, tenants should be as specific as possible in describing the damage or defects and needed repair. Tenants should ask their landlord to tell them when repairs will be made and provide a phone number to reach you.
