Brentwood Guest House “Tenant from Hell” Exits Home After 575-Day ‘Rent-Free’ Stay

Unusual Tenant-Landlord Feud Continues as Renter Vacates Property 

By Dolores Quintana

In one of Los Angeles’ most unusual tenant-landlord disputes, Elizabeth Hirschhorn, who had earned the dubious title of a “tenant from hell,” seemingly vacated the Los Angeles guesthouse she had reportedly occupied for 575 days without paying rent.

According to reports by The Los Angeles Times, Sascha Jovanovic, the landlord, came into contact with Hirschhorn in September 2021. Hirschhorn wanted to rent the guest house that she found on Airbnb for six months initially. 

The property, situated in Brentwood, boasts luxurious amenities, including a pool, rooftop tennis court, and a fully equipped fitness center, with private patios in each of the suites. However, a complaint filed by Jovanovic alleges that Hirschhorn’s initially planned six-month stay stretched to an astounding 575 days, during which she resided in the $3.5 million home without paying any rent.

Photographs published by the Daily Mail on Monday depict Los Angeles Police Department officers inside the guest house, located in the Crestwood Hills neighborhood of Brentwood. Other images show movers transporting Hirschhorn’s belongings. On Monday, Jovanovic’s attorney, Sebastian Rucci, who had previously labeled Hirschhorn as “the tenant from hell” to the Los Angeles Times, filed a notice of voluntary dismissal without prejudice in Los Angeles County Superior Court. 

While a judge approved the dismissal of the eviction case, the lawsuit for damages against Hirschhorn remains active, as confirmed by Rucci according to People Magazine. 

Both sides disagree if Hirschorn was evicted or if she left voluntarily. One side claims that she was escorted from the premises by the police and the owner changed the locks and Hirschhorn’s attorney claims that her client left due to harassment.

Amanda Seward, Hirschhorn’s attorney said that “Hirschhorn continues to pursue her claims for damages and affirmative claims arising out of the harassment, property damage, doxing, and other actions taken by Jovanovic.” according to the Los Angeles Times.
