I was not paid by my last boss to no fault of my own and he owes me a lot of money, but has not paid me so far, so my income has gone down extensively, hence the reason for my delayed rent payment. I am trying to get the rest of the money asap ($1500) but don't know when exactly.
The landlord could serve you with a 3 day notice for non-payment for the balance that you owe. If you do not pay within 3 days of being served with the 3 day notice, then the landlord could file an eviction court case against you.
I am on a month-to-month lease from a year lease that ended in April. I understand that I need to give a 30-day notice which I want to send right away. But since it is May 7th, and 30-days is June 7th, do I have to pay the whole month of June? My rent is pre-paid on the First of each month.
If you are on an unexpired lease, then generally the landlord cannot give you a 30 day notice to terminate tenancy. The landlord could, however, give you a 3 day notice if you are violating something in the lease.
Read through your stipulation. Often times it will require the plaintiff to file a declaration of non-compliance or it may require an ex-parte appearance. Collections are an entirely different process. If the defendant doesn't make the payments, you may need to consider a wage garnishment,...View More
Assuming you are not in a rent-controlled area and are on a month-to-month tenancy, then yes, the landlord can serve you with a written 60 day notice to move. You would then have 60 days to move. If you do not move within the 60 days, the landlord would then be able to file an unlawful detainer...View More
More facts are needed. Is your property subject to Los Angeles rent control? If it is, the landlord can only evict you for certain reasons, and many of those reasons require the payment of relocation assistance to the tenants. If the property is not subject to rent control, then yes, the landlord...View More
Normally, if a tenant is on a lease, the lease would continue even if the owner sells the house. The new owner would become the new landlord. The reasoning is, the new owner purchased the house with knowledge of the existing tenancy. There are some exceptions. You may want to contact an attorney to...View More
You need to review your lease. You signed a binding contract. Normally, you would be responsible for paying for the full term of the lease, even if you leave early. However, the landlord is required to try to minimize the loss by re-renting the property as quickly as possible. If that happens, most...View More
It is impossible to give you legal advice based on your post. Why have the people been living in the house for free? Why have you waited 2 years before evicting? You should probably contact a local eviction attorney for a consultation and perhaps representation.
I live on a shared property that has two houses. I rent 1 of the homes. The landlord frequently comes over to do things on the property without giving me any notice. The landlord says that because the other house is a "vacation rental" that they don't have to provide me with 24 hour... View More
Your landlord would be required to give you proper and reasonable notice if they were to enter your specific unit. If the landlord is simply entering the common area on the property, he would not need to provide notice.
She's 82 yr. old, who interviewed well, but after 2 weeks living here is hostile, escalates quickly and has struck me. I want her out. I called the police and all they did was talk to her, and act like it was no big deal. I'm 65 yr. old We are both female about the same size
If your roommate is a co-tenant, there's not much you can do to evict her. If she is your "tenant" and you are her "landlord," you may be able to serve her with a valid termination notice and then file an unlawful detainer action in court if she fails to move at the...View More
