Tenants Can be Evicted for a Number of Reasons
If a tenant is doing something wrong —not paying rent, for example — the landlord must give a three-day notice to demand payment of rent. Then, before a tenant can be evicted, the landlord must file a lawsuit, called an unlawful detainer, and the landlord must then win the lawsuit in court.
A tenant may also be evicted in an owner move-in situation, in which the owner of the property moves into the tenant’s space. However, the landlord must give a 30-day notice for tenants of less than a year or less, and a 60-day notice to tenants of more than a year.
Homeowner Foreclosure Eviction

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.
