Irvine Company / Corrupt landlord, illegal billing schemes, fraud, slumlord
Irvine Co. had the nerve to contact my lawyer and agree to let me out of my lease if I remove the Yelp review and photos. That's not how it works. Irvine Co. and management has and is continuously breaking the law. It's not like someone promises to stop running over pedestrians and obey the law as long as people stop recording and reporting them. It doesn't work that way! Justice needs to be delivered for one's illegal behavior.
Irvine Company illegally defamed my character telling my lawyer I "staged" the photos at The Village (where I reside). How stupid could one be! Stating such is only getting Irvine Company and it's management in deeper legal trouble and more serious media exposure.
Irvine Company & The Village are continuously in violation of multiple Civil Codes and Ordinances for many years and need to own-up to it, cease engaging in unfair business practices, stop all shoddy business tactics and immediately correct their actions. I'm fine paying the remaining months of my lease while renting elsewhere just to keep my legitimate review and photos on Yelp and continue exposing them to the media! People need to be informed what to expect should they choose to do business with Irvine Company. Again, it's not a financial issue with me; it's principal.
Emails with time stamped photos attached between myself and management and Corporate Customer Care are saved, dating back to May 2014, so if these were "staged", why didn't Irvine Co. speak up and/or do anything about it?
Either way, Irvine Co. and management has a legal obligation to make certain the property/dwelling is kept in every part clean, sanitary and free from all accumulation of debris, filth, rubbish, garbage, rodent and vermin pursuant to Civil Code Section 1941.1(a)(6). What's their reason for allowing trash to sit outside apartments for more than a day and even longer than a week?
Furthermore, pursuant to Civil Code Section 1942.4, Irvine Company is prohibited from collecting rent for a premises when it's in violation of Civil Code Section 1941.1. In return, tenants are entitled to reimbursement for their rent they've paid while the premises have been uninhabitable.
Irvine Company and management are constantly maintaining a nuisance at The Village. They are continuously failing to enforce paragraph 13 of the lease by allowing the illegal AirBnb business to be conducted at the property. They have been informed of this matter numerous times and negligently give it the blind eye and deaf ear. The only thing Irvine Company did was send a sugarcoated generic letter to all tenants at The Village dated June 13, 2016, informing them how it's a violation of the lease to sublease their unit (aka running an AirBnb business).
Paragraph 13 of the lease specifically states (photo also included with their Yelp profile...approximately page 2 of the photos) it is a violation of the lease for any tenant to "advertise the Premises on AirBnb, Couchsurfing, Craigslist, or any other advertisement or listing service". Furthermore, aside from paragraph 13 of said lease, it is a violation of the Irvine Municipal Code to operate an establishment allowing transient occupancy without obtaining a transient occupancy registration certificate from the City's Manager of Fiscal Services, and without paying the corresponding transient occupancy tax.
Allowing such illegal activity to take place puts all innocent tenants lives at risk. Anyone from anywhere could illegally rent a unit for days, weeks or even months at a time via AirBnb with no credit or criminal background check required. That means murderers, rapists, thieves, drug dealers, etc could rent any AirBnb unit only requiring an AirBnb account and credit card. Hello! Even murderers and rapists have credit cards!
With the way Irvine Company is illegally and falsely accusing the trash to be "staged" on the properties, they must be insisting it's been staged at The Park and all those other properties people complain about all the time. That's an awful lot of years of "staging" trash. Again, Irvine Company is just digging a deeper hole for themselves. My Google photos posted 2 weeks ago for Irvine Company and The village already have approximately 52, 000 views; that's 2 weeks only.
What about the 31 serious crimes committed at The Village within the first six months of 2016? Surely those were not staged, but you know Irvine Company is not very smart! I have a crime report provided by Irvine Police Department last June for all crimes (theft related) at The Village for the first six months of 2016. It's in the photos section of Irvine Company's Yelp profile.
