  • Ongoing roach problems reported by new and long-term tenants.
  • Initial attempts by landlords to address the issue failed due to roaches being present across the development.
  • Children are coming into contact with cockroaches; it is affecting quality of life for tenants.
  • Tenants expressed fear of landlord retaliation, but showed willingness to confront the HOA.

Current Project: Letter to Code Enforcement About Cockroach Infestation

  • Review of Cal-Villa’s governing documents shows the HOA’s responsibility for common areas, where the cockroach infestation is actually originating from.
  • Instead of tackling this issue landlord by landlord, urge Stockton Code Enforcement to impose fines on the HOA until they address the infestation.


  • Use this widespread issue to encourage tenant participation and involvement in the Cal-Villa Tenant Association.
  • Obtain signatures from a majority of affected tenants.
  • Organizing a meeting of the Cal-Villa Tenant Association to discuss next steps at the end of the month.
