Nothing boils the blood more than a bad rental experience.

Whether it's a landlord who pockets your cleaning deposit for no good reason or one who's trying to evict you so she can raise the rent, it's a tough town for apartment hunters.

As such, we want to hear your stories for possible use in an upcoming story on the challenges of renting in L.A.

Has the owner of your building filed for Ellis Act evictions? Is the manager fair only to people of certain ethnic backgrounds? Did you put down a deposit on an open unit only to see a fake listing agent run off with it? *Are you having trouble finding a place within your budget or are you simply priced out of L.A?

It happens.

Email us your stories here. We'll read them all and get back to you if you have a particularly juicy one.
