Determined Landlords Will Try Anything to Get a Tenant Out…
In Southern California, a landlord can evict a tenant for a number of reasons. All of the tenant-fault based grounds for eviction (such as non-payment of rent) require that the tenant be given at least three days to fix the problem, except if the tenant is committing a nuisance. In that case no opportunity to fix the problem is required to be given to the tenant. However, landlords will try to get creative and classify certain acts as a nuisance that really aren’t so that they can evict long-term tenants from their homes or apartments and then raise the rents for a new tenant.
If you have received an eviction notice for supposedly committing a nuisance —or any other reasons— contact us right away. We may be able to help you preserve your home and your rights.
A Landlord Cannot Lock You Out of Your Home
At the end of a 3, 30, or 60-day notice, it is illegal to lock a tenant out of, or force a tenant out of his or her home. If a landlord wants a tenant to move out, an unlawful detainer lawsuit must be filed by the landlord and he must win in court before you can be evicted.
