Janet Eisner, a four-year resident of Villa Valentino in Hollywood, stands outside an apartment that has a note from a tenant warning a moving company not to remove any items. The new owner of the circa-1920s apartment complex has tried to evict residents, claiming the building has no safe water, no proper security, a rodent and termite infestation and a carbon monoxide leak. Residents say that isn't true and are fighting to stay.
