The current owner is in the process of selling the house. My unit is currently uninhabitable (mold, water intrusion, no heat, multiple open DBI complaints). I am going to file for constructive eviction and hightail it out of there.
If the new owner, who buys the house, decides to legalize the unit, and accept me back, can I move back? Or filing for constructive eviction doesn't allow me to anymore?
Consult with a San Francisco tenants’ lawyer. You may want to file your lawsuit and record a lid pendens immediately. Recording the Lis pendens will protect your rights to return to the unit. It will also likely force your landlord to address your claims now.
