Construction nearly finished at Olmsted Terrace, near College Terrace by Martin Sanchez tanford University is building a new neighborhood near Stanford Avenue that university officials say will provide much-needed more affordable housing for Stanford University faculty members who have not already owned a home in the area. Olmsted Terrace will consist of 39 single-family homes between Stanford Avenue and Olmsted Road on the Stanford Campus, Lisa Lapin, university communications director, said. The houses’ driveways will exit onto Olmsted Road or the sections of Oberlin Street and Wellesley Street north of Stanford Avenue, Stanford faculty housing staff said. The houses will be finished over the summer, Lapin said. A single model home will be finished “sometime in the next couple of months,” at which time the other 38 homes will go on sale, she said. Tenured or tenure-track faculty members and high-level university staff are eligible for the houses but priority will be given to tenured or tenure-track faculty members who have never owned a home on the Peninsula or certain parts of the East Bay, Lapin said. Providing homes for new faculty members is “a very big concern” for the university, Patricia Jones, Stanford vice provost of faculty development and diversity, said. She said Stanford hired 100 new faculty members last year and 125 the year before. “We have faculty who are just coming from being graduate students who have no savings, and we have faculty who come from other institutions in less expensive areas who bring no equity to the area,” she said. Faculty housing staff said three-bedroom house prices would start at roughly $700,000 and four-bedroom house prices would start at roughly $900,000. The final prices will be determined once a Santa Clara County assessor prices the neighborhood’s individual land parcels, Lapin said. Stanford’s faculty housing staff said several restrictions on Olmsted Terrace leases allow the university to price the houses at a level that most faculty members can afford. Emeriti faculty members, as well as partners of deceased faculty members, can stay in their Olmsted Terrace home for 10 years after retirement. Jones said Olmsted Terrace’s comparatively low prices make it a “new method” of housing faculty members. “Most of the on-campus housing before this development is not supposed to be more affordable than the surrounding community,” she said. More than 200 people have expressed interest in buying a home at Olmsted Terrace, Lapin said. The eventual house prices could deter

Olmsted Terrace (continued from page 33)
some of those people, she said, but she still expects more than 39 would-be buyers when the homes go on sale. “I think that this development won’t change the situation that much,” she said of the faculty housing issue. Most of the 850 existing houses on campus are already occupied by current or emeriti faculty members, high-level staff and the families of deceased faculty members, she said. Noise and dust from Olmsted Terrace construction work have disturbed some residents of the nearby College Terrace neighborhood, College Terrace Residents Association (CTRA) member Melissa Campbell said. The construction efforts have also blocked off parking spaces around Stanford Avenue, which has pushed more drivers into College Terrace to find parking, she said. Campbell said university representatives met with College Terrace residents “over a year ago” to discuss potential conflicts over the Olmsted Terrace project and have maintained a website and e-mail account to which residents can send their concerns and comments. “In my experience, Stanford was very responsive to our concerns. ... They have really been exemplary neighbors,” she said. She cited the university’s efforts to quickly clean up dust and warn College Terrace residents of construction work on Saturday mornings as examples of that “responsiveness.” College Terrace residents are glad Olmsted Terrace houses will not be directly accessible from Stanford Avenue, Campbell said. But, the new neighborhood will still increase the amount of traffic in College
Terrace, she said. “I believe there is some cause for concern about the intersection of El Camino and Stanford, especially because of the change in that intersection” she said, referring to the planned removal of right-turn lanes onto El Camino Real. “I’m sure there will be a little transition period,” she said. Outgoing CTRA treasurer Larry Kavinoky said Stanford Avenue congestion could be relieved by diverting traffic towards alternate campus access routes such as Junipero Serra Boulevard. Animosity between the university and its neighbors could be avoided if the university and the city of Palo Alto investigate potential traffic changes before Olmsted Terrace construction ends, he said. This “collegial” attitude would also benefit other, larger construction projects such as the planned $3.5 billion renovation of Stanford Hospital & Clinics and the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, he said. “I think the housing is great, and I like to have it here. ... We have to do it in a way that keeps it livable for all of us,” he said. Palo Alto school board officials said children from Olmsted Terrace will probably attend Escondido Elementary, Lapin said. That decision could change if Escondido does not have room for the new students, she said. Seven of the Olmsted Terrace homes will have four bedrooms and three bathrooms and the remaining 32 will have three bedrooms and two bathrooms, Stanford’s faculty housing staff said. Average lot size is about 4,900 square feet, staff said. N READ MORE ONLINE For more Home and Real Estate news, visit www. paloaltoonline.com/real_estate.

RentWatch Can a landlord ask about citizenship status? by Martin Eichner
I have been managing an apartment complex for about 20 years. We have been using the same rental application all that time. The rental application asks if the applicant is a U.S. citizen, and if they are not, it asks for verification of immigration status. This is the standard we’ve been using for years, and so far we haven’t had any complaints about it. I was recently told by a friend, however, that there’s a California law against asking about an applicant’s citizenship status. Is it discriminatory to ask these questions in the application process? It was a good decision to ask about your application process because your friend was correct. Since 2008, California Civil Code Section 1940.3 has precluded questions about immigration status, and has precluded requiring verification of citizenship in the application process for residential tenants. You are allowed to require all applicants to provide proof of financial stability, as long as your financial criteria are applied to all applicants regardless of citizenship status. If you continue using your old application, you would be leaving yourself vulnerable for discrimination complaints. Since housing laws in California do change over time, you should consider it a sound business practice to periodically review your application forms and process to make sure they comply
with current legal requirements. Your local fair housing or landlord/ tenant counseling service can help, and if you belong to an apartment owners association, they probably offer updates.
My elderly aunt has rented the same apartment for more than 15 years. Recently she received a “warning notice” from the manager requiring her to remove her accumulated belongings from the unit because they “constitute a safety hazard.” When I called the resident manager about the warning notice, she said my aunt was a “hoarder.” I know that my aunt has difficult discarding possessions, even old newspapers. I don’t think she can control this behavior, and I am worried that she may have some kind of mental illness. Is there anything that can be done to protect her? The first step for you or your aunt is probably to talk with her health care provider. The provider should be asked whether your aunt has an identifiable medical disability that interferes with a basic life activity such as her ability to maintain the order in her living situation. If so, your aunt may be entitled

to request a reasonable accommodation, if the medical provider is willing to put this opinion in writing. The provider does not have to provide specific details such as the exact diagnosis or include any medical records. The resulting written opinion should be given to the apartment management with a request that your aunt be provided a reasonable accommodation. Once you take these steps, management is supposed to work with you to explore options for the accommodation. In cases where hoarding has resulted in a request for a reasonable accommodation, various solutions have been explored such as having building maintenance help remove some items or finding a local volunteer organization to help organize the property. However, it is not reasonable to insist that your aunt be allowed to continue to accumulate items if that activity is resulting in a health or safety hazard in the rental community. I rent a house that is owned by someone who is apparently having trouble paying the mortgage. The overall quality of service from the owner has deteriorated in recent months and now I am getting copies of notices from the utility company threatening to shut off the power due to non-payment. I have been continuing to pay the rent due under our rental agreement. It certainly is not fair for me to lose my electricity and other utilities while continuing to pay rent. What are my choices here? Until recently, tenants whose landlords failed to provide utilities that were supposed to be included in the rent had very

limited remedies. However, in 2009, California passed a group of amendments to the California Civil Code and to the Public Utilities Code that in summary allow tenants to bypass errant landlords. Assuming that there is a separate meter for the house you rent, the laws require the utility to send you notice 10 days before a utility shutoff, with an opportunity for you to qualify to open your own separate account. Most important of all, Civil Code Section 942.2 allows you to deduct the subsequent utility payments from the monthly rent you would otherwise owe the landlord once you establish your own account.
I just moved to a relatively large apartment complex a few months ago, which has four separate buildings. As a Guatemalan immigrant, I was happy when I noticed that most of my neighbors in my building were Latino. But then, when I have walked near the other buildings, I noticed that I wasn’t seeing anyone who appeared to be a Latino tenant, just whites and Asians. Now that I think back about the tour given to me by the leasing agent, I remember that she emphasized that I would like to rent here because I would feel comfortable with my neighbors. I like living in a building with people who speak my native language, but it doesn’t seem right to limit where I can live within this community. Can this be considered discrimination? Under fair housing law, what you have described may be a discriminatory practice known as “steering.” This practice

occurs when a housing provider shows an applicant only certain vacant units and not all available units, as a means of segregating certain types of applicants to limited sections of the rental community. If a housing provider steers applicants based on any protected category, such as race, national origin, familial status or disability, it is viewed as a discriminatory practice. A housing provider needs to offer applicants every unit that is available for rent, leaving the decision of choosing the unit up to the prospective tenant. Every applicant touring a property should ask to see all available units, to decrease the possibility of steering. If a housing provider shows an applicant all available units and the tenant chooses a particular area that is occupied by tenants from a similar background, that would not be considered steering, because the applicant is making the choice, not the housing provider. A fair housing agency can “test” this property’s rental practices, by sending both Latino and non-Latino applicants to the leasing agent, to see if both applicants are shown the same units.
