Evictions are being processed in court. If you were not on the lease and the actual lessee got a summons, you could have included yourself in the suit through the answer. The LL usually posts a notice to unauthorized occupants and defaults them after serving the Summons/complaint. The inception...Read more »
Landlord tried to raise our rents (7 tenants in a house, 4 BR when originally built) by 30% or more on only 30 days notice. Me and another tenant resisted paying the increase after doing online research that he can only raises it 10% max.
Now landlord posted a 60 day notice terminating... Read more »
Yes to all of the above. Sorry to hear you are being subjected to this treatment. If you reported code violations before he gave any eviction notices, you probably have an excellent case to defend an eviction action on retaliatory basis. Once you win that you have a lawsuit against landlord for...Read more »
Very sorry to hear about this. You need to contact a local attorney about this and start a small claims action to recover rents paid and for "forceable detainer" which is when a LL evicts without legal process. You are entitled to a number of damages, value of property left in the...Read more »
You would be safest to serve your own 60 day notice and remember the tenant is required to pay rent during this time and is entitled to a month's rent as moving allowance. After 60 days, evict. Be sure to comply with any rent moratorium requirements and notices to tenant about rental...Read more »
I have lived at my place for 10 months. I was recently told by LAPD I had an invalid lease but the owner would be returning with eviction papers. I waited and waited but got nothing. One day, I come "home" to the management company on my property. They had shut all my utilities off,... Read more »
Very sorry to hear about this. You probably qualify for a Court Fees waiver. You should file an action against the landlord and the management company for "Forceable detainer" which is illegally locking you out of the apartment without going through any eviction process or notices to...Read more »

There is a law on the books since 2017 that says if you are being treated by a provider under a plan and get additional treatment from a non plan provider that the non plan provider must take the amount allowed by the plan. Consult with an attorney about this and google this for the California law...Read more »

I bought a car from a used car lot in CA I was given a temporary registration paper while the dealership put in for the registration. It has only been a week but I was pulled over and my car was towed because they said the registration is not in my name.
You should consult a local attorney about your situation and take him all the documents that you had for the police. If the registration matched your driver's license this should not have happened. (easy for me to say after it has happened) So sorry to hear this.
I thought since it was in a minors name that it would be there until the minor was able to access the CD. Thinking all these years it was collecting interest. What are my rights to protect my sons money. To get back the amount i deposited plus... Read more »
If you have proof that you took this out in the minor's name you should reclaim through the state controller's unclaimed property office procedures, otherwise the persons in whose name it was taken in can make the claim. Also, do a search of that office under your name for other accounts.

The car I made contact with was the police chiefs kid at school. I didn't think I did any damage police report shows some paint bubbling and a scratch. It seemed really outrageous that they would press charges since I offered to pay for the damage and apologized profusely when I was... Read more »
you need an attorney to deal with criminal charges. He can also help negotiate payment for the damage. You don't talk about your insurance, I assume you have none, could be a ticket in that for you as well, currently $900+ if no insurance, get some right away before the charges land, you...Read more »
I am receiving notices of violation from a patrol company for "monitored for stored." My HOA requires vehicles be moved at least every 30 days. I need to be able to prove I do move my vehicle about 2-3 times per week. Any advice on a method that would stand up in court if I am towed in error?
In Los Angeles, is it legal for someone to occupy more than one parking space, or to block other parking spaces with their vehicle, when parallel parking on a residential street? I'm inquiring because a resident on the block where I live routinely parks his three cars on the street spaced so... Read more »
You really need the help of an attorney now. First, you may be able to collect attorney's fees to collect on the judgment. Next, a successor company is usually responsible for the debts of the predecessor. But an attorney has to look at all of this and determine the best way to go. Go to...Read more »
I have been given a separation agreement with the following terminology: All applicable insurance benefit coverages will end on the separation date, provided that if employee is currently covered by a medical, dental or vision plan provided by company, employees benefits under such plan will...

Excellent question, and one which a local employment law attorney will answer for you after they can review the entire agreement, but you will have to pay a fee for the service. Cannot give an opinion about it with what you put online because there are undefined terms, such as "separation...Read more »
Seems like a huge risk for the employer if they were to get caught. Curious to know if there is a legal strategy behind giving the green light on IIED. interested to know (theoretically) why legal would encourage that behavior considering it is unlawful. Would an employer take that risk if there... Read more »
Interesting question and sorry to hear you were poorly treated. Why would an employer take risks as you describe- in a hypothetical situation? One possible reason is that if you are claiming that you suffered a stress injury as a result of your work/workplace, that would be in the worker's...Read more »
