hen Vani Henderson and her husband Irv moved into their home on Walter Hays Drive in 2009, they were four days away from giving birth to their second child. One of the things that attracted them to the neighborhood was a child-friendly atmosphere that would suit their growing family. “We wanted a good school and somewhere we could see kids around and playing outside,” Hen-

NEIGHBORHOOD SNAPSHOT derson said. Three years later, Henderson noted that her family’s experience in the Duveneck neighborhood is exactly what she was hoping for. “This is a really nice community. On weekends we have kids running in and out of the house,” she said. Henderson and her family take advantage of many of the facilities

that are close by. She said that she, her husband and their two young children often visit Eleanor Pardee Park, the Palo Alto Junior Museum & Zoo and the Palo Alto Children’s Library. “We really like to walk or bike wherever we can,” Henderson said, adding that she is grateful for her proximity to downtown Palo Alto

and the entrance to Highway 101. Near Walter Hays Drive lives Diana Nemet, her husband Todd, and their two children. Although the family originally thought that their 2003 move to Iris Way was only temporary, Nemet said that the relationships they have formed with their neighbors makes it impossible for them to relocate. “Now I will not move. I cannot (continued on page 35)

In 2009, Nemet and her neighbor, Jennifer Antonow, founded Camp Iris Way, a yearly, week-long summer camp filled with activities for children from Iris Way and the adjoining Primrose Way. Nemet, who said she knows all of her neighbors, appreciates the relationships she has built over the years. However, there is one thing she would change about her neighborhood if she could. “I wish we weren’t in the flood zone,” she said. Nemet and her family were not around for the 1998 San Francisquito

Creek flood, but resident Kurt Taylor was there. Taylor moved to De Soto Drive in 1991 and said that even though the flood took everybody by surprise, he and his neighbors were quick to act. “The neighborhood really pulled together almost instantly to try to help the people whose houses were hit the worst,” he said. Some neighbors had to make major repairs to their homes after the flood, but other than that, the neighborhood has nearly stayed the same. “There’s not been any dramatic physical changes primarily because most people who buy these houses buy them because they like them. They like the

Henderson and her husband are no exception. “Often the homes are older and could benefit from some sprucing up,” Henderson said. However, Henderson said she believes that her community and the nearby facilities make the expenses associated with moving into an older home on a nice street negligible. Now that the Hendersons have finished renovating their home and are settled in, Henderson said that the family is there to stay for the long-term. “I couldn’t imagine living in a better place.” N

RentWatch Can a landlord rent only to Christians? edited by Martin Eichner

Q

I am a first-time landlord who just bought a small sixunit apartment building as a personal investment. My Christian faith is extremely important to me and it affects every aspect of my life. I would prefer to rent out the apartments in my building to other Christians, not because I am prejudiced against non-Christians, but because I like the idea of creating a community of believers living together in fellowship. I have been told that the fairhousing laws do not allow me to specify in my advertising that I will only accept Christian tenants. Even if that is the rule, in my own selection process can I ask about an applicant’s religious beliefs and give a preference to an applicant who is a true Christian applicant, if all other qualifications are even? By making a selection on this basis, I think I would just be exercising my own religious freedom guaranteed by our laws. I also want to know

if it would violate the fa i r-housing laws if I only advertise rentals in Christian newspapers or on Ch r istian websites? Both federal and state fairhousing laws prohibit refusing to rent to a prospective tenant because of his or her religion, and you would be doing just that by choosing one applicant over another based on the fact that one of the applicants is a Christian, when all other qualifications are even. Even though you may not feel like you have discriminatory motives when you prefer Christian tenants as a way of practicing your religion, operating rental property is a business, subject to all of the state and federal laws that govern

such a business, including fairhousing laws. It is true that a recognized religious organization is allowed to prefer tenants of that organization’s religion in some circumstances, but an individual with strong religious beliefs such as yourself is not included in that exception to the general fair-housing rules. As for your second question, federal and state fair-housing laws do not prescribe where or how you must find your tenants. As long as your rental advertisements do not contain language that indicates a preference for Christian tenants, or discourages in any way non-Christian tenants from applying, and as long as you do not prefer Christian tenants over non-Christian tenants in the selection process, simply limiting your rental advertisements to particular venues would probably not, in and of itself, violate the fairhousing laws.

We recently moved out of a house that we were renting. Our lease stated that the tenant was required to have the home and carpets professionally cleaned upon vacancy. We offered the landlady $350 from our deposit to hire a company to clean the house to her liking. When we received our refund, we saw that she deducted

this amount from our security deposit. However, by then I had driven back to our rental to pick up my remaining boxes. When I was there, I saw that our landlady had painters repainting the entire house. I decided to drive by the house again, a few days later. When I did, I saw a flooring and carpet company ripping out and replacing all of the flooring. Was the landlady entitled to deduct this $350 for cleaning when she was intending to repaint and recarpet the entire house anyway? California Civil Code Section 1950.5 regulates the disposition of security deposits in California. An important part of the procedure established by that statute is the requirement that the landlord provide an accounting of the security deposit to the former tenant within 21 days after the tenant has vacated. If more than $125 was deducted for cleaning or repairs, that accounting should have included receipts and invoices for any repair and cleaning work that was being charged against your deposit. Since the amount of $350 was deducted from your security deposit, you should have received an invoice from a carpet-cleaning company or other similar service provider re-

flecting that the cleaning work was actually performed. If the work wasn’t performed, there shouldn’t be any supporting invoice. Civil Code Section 1950.5 was amended several years ago to require that the security-deposit deposition include actual receipts to expressly end the prior practice of some landlords who charged for work that was never performed. If you wish to pursue this issue, you can write a letter to your former landlady pointing out that the invoice for cleaning was not included. You could request that she refund the $350 deduction to you, or that you two reach a compromise on the deduction, particularly if she can produce the required documentation. If she refuses, you can contact your local mediation agency or pursue a small claims court action against her.

“I believe that local newspaper advertising is essential to my real estate business.” – Mary Gilles There is something tangible and personal about holding the paper over your morning coffee that cannot be replaced by surfing the net. The paper provides a much richer experience because it is one of the key elements that define a community. Home buyers are buying the community as much as the house they are seeking. The importance of print advertising was never more apparent until recently when a luxury property I was preparing for the market was advertised in the Weekly and the Almanac. Soon after the ad appeared, we sold the home to the buyer who saw the ad and called her agent asking to see the home. Just like that. This is why I will continue to make advertising in the Weekly and the Almanac a key part of my marketing plan.

A Petition for Probate has been filed by: CHRISTIAN L. CRANE in the Superior Court of California, County of SANTA CLARA. The Petition for Probate requests that: CHRISTIAN L. CRANE be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests the decedentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on May 29, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: 03 of the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara, located at 191 N. First St., San Jose, CA, 95113. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58 (b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Petitioner: /s/ Christian L.
