Welcome to the Hall, feel free to explore

The Landlord Hall of Shame aims to expose the worst landlords in California. The Hall of Shame is brought to you by Tenants Together, California's statewide organization for renters' rights.

Here's how it works: Anyone can suggest nominees or comment on suggested nominees. Based on your input and our research, Tenants Together will announce Official Nominees throughout the year. Annually, members of Tenants Together will vote to determine which of the Official Nominees should be inducted into the Hall of Shame.

Featured Nominee

David Hovannisian ( Fresno )

JD Home Rentals, owned and operated by father-son pair John and David Hovannisian, rents hundreds of units to low-income residents throughout Fresno. The Hovannisians are notorious for renting apartments in substandard conditions that jeopardize the health of their tenants. The Better Business Bureau of Central California has given JD Home Rentals an 'F' score for receiving and failing to respond to a high number of complaints. Recently, Reverend Sharon Stanley of the Fresno Interdenominational Refugee Ministries showed local reporters a bag full of roaches collected from one apartment in an infested apartment complex.
