Put the complaints in writing and mail it to them. You are protected under California Civil Code Section 1927. Be mindful that this is a law that your complex has to adhere to. Also, know that not all things stated in a lease are enforceable or are limited to what is in the lease. The law supersedes. Everybody has a right to quiet enjoyment. If it is not quiet and the landlord does nothing, record it, have others witness it, call the building inspector to see if corners were cut with insulation, and sue in small claims. You can sue for the value of the apartment being less than fair market value related to noise and lack of enjoyment, all moving costs, emotional distress, etc. ... more

The entire area has become a crime infested dump. I live in browns valley where crime has gone through the roof. Use to be nice now vandalization and car thefts have become the norm. Chief of police Carli is an incompetent buffoon and since this moron became chief VV has fallen apart. His officers do not follow the law or uphold it. Thanks idiot it use to be a nice place to live. Thought your motto was to serve and protect not ignore and neglect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ... more

There is a crime graph located on that properties page that shows that area is safe. You can also "Google" the crime stats for that area and last but not least, call the local police department and ask them about crime in that area. They would know! ... more

I just checked the address on this home on the crime rating site for Vallejo. I lived there several years ago while stationed in the Navy and am planning on moving back. This address is now listed in the orange area, very close to the cut off of the red area. Red area is the highest crime rate for the city of Vallejo. The ratings run green (low-red high) in order green-yellow-orange-red. Just so all are well informed... ... more

Find a good real estate agent. They should be able to steer you toward some great web sites that give information on schools and crime in the area. Also, many states will provide information on sex offenders that may be living in the area. Splurge and take a two day vacation at a local hotel. Walk around town. Check out the coffee shops and restaurants. Talk to people. Its worth the time to justify the investment! ... more

You're renting a house, right? You have a contract. Is her signature on the contract? Are you planning to move?

You might seek legal advice - Hard to do when emotions are involved, but absolutely necessary.

Deep breath, keep a level head - this is the time when you're going to need it!!

Best of luck
