Tenants not offered much to relocate to new homes


Regarding "City buying properties on El Camino for interchange," I'm one of the 13 tenants who reside at 2601 Don Pedro Road. I just wanted to let the writer know that the part about the owner wanting $30,000 for loss of income and to relocate tenants was all a show to make the owners look good. All they are offering us is $400 to move out in two weeks. Before I saw this article on June 14, the landlord came knocking at our doors of each unit and gave us each a 60-day notice and said we still have to pay rent. Now with getting that notice I'm not knowing what to do because I‘m a single mom of two little girls - one is 8 and the other is 9 months - living in a one-bedroom apartment barely making it. With rent of $625 on an income $541 I have a lot of back-rent to catch up on and they want to offer us $400 to relocate in two weeks! I don't think that's right. I've been living in this apartment since December of 2013.

I just wanted the writer of this article to know all facts from the tenant's side of view.
