100% agree with the other review in that he preys on younger/college-going tenants. Often got “offended” as he claimed, when we would tell him something he did would go directly against the lease. Any issues that came up was immediately our fault despite his crappy DIY fixes to the toilet or lighting in the kitchen. Over conflated how much he would need to repair SCRATCHES on the floor and kept our WHOLE $2600 deposit. Absolutely pathetic excuse for a landlord, don’t even bother.

Five Unit Complex Above Gas Station (Managed by David Hou)

Posted 9 months ago

Two important things of note: this landlord preys on younger and/or low-income tenants. Additionally, for the price of a unit in this neighborhood in Oakland, the property is very poorly maintained for what you end up renting. Parking, laundry, and pet fees are not included (and sometimes you are charged for trash). Do not, under any circumstance, assume you will receive your security deposit upon departure, even if you have been a 'good' tenant.
