Over the last year, we've been following the fight of tenants at 920 Everett Street in L.A. to stay in their apartments as they get shuffled from one owner to another.

Their current landlord is trying to force them out so she can renovate the complex. That has tenants worried about where they would go during the pandemic.

They confronted the landlord at her home in Costa Mesa, and the next day their building got hit with graffiti from top to bottom.
