  • Tenant creates blight

    This is in Calif. After tenant was evicted we found that they had stopped city garbage service several months earlier. Apparently they threw garbage over the wood fence into city-owned property, though we have no proof of it. The city has not contacted us - yet.

    There's no forwarding address to contact the tenant. She has not left the county, & I'm sure the police could find her if they contacted her son's school.

    Would a Landlord insurance policy cover us if we are billed for cleanup?
    Can the city bill us if the tenant was at fault?

    What to do?

    I wish to inform you that generally it is duty of tenant and they should be held liable for fines relating to throwing of garbage. Generally fine is made only on the person who has thrown the garbage and not other parties. Further in this regard if state makes landlord liable for any fine or penalty then landlord can recover those fines from tenants.

      There would have to be a burden of proof.
