MAILING ADDRESS FOR THIS CLAIM: CITY,STATE & ZIP WORK PHONE NO. 2 WHERE DID THE INCIDENT HAPPEN? DATE OF INCIDENT Not applicable -- This is a billing dispute. TIME OF INCIDENT 3 DESCRIBE THE INCIDENT (USE BACK OF FORM AND ADDITIONAL SHEETS IF NECESSARY) You charged me a "bulky item fee," but I own a condo, and the law only allows you to impose that charge on apartments, not condos. You can see this by reviewing the Los Angeles Municipal Code at Article 6.1, Section 66.41(c), which authorizes the charge for apartment buildings and apartment tenants. Condos are not included. In 2008, City Council Members Huizar and LaBonge made a motion to charge condos, too, but the motion was not adopted. Therefore, you cannot charge me for this. DESCRIBE THE DAMAGE/INJURY/LOSS 4 The damage is the amount you have charged me for the "bulky item fee," namely, $15.36, plus interest at the legal rate of 10% per year for the past 12 months' worth of charges, which according to my calculations is another 83 cents, for a total of $16.19. 5 AMOUNT OF CLAIM NOTE: ENCLOSURE SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS: Bills, Estimates, Invoices, Photos, etc. $ 16.19 6 POLICE REPORT TAKEN?
