San Diego, CA asked in Landlord - Tenant for California

Q: How to move Grandpa in our rental house if we have tenants on a lease until Feb 2021???

Our Grandpa needs care, my brother and I live on the same block as the rental house we have, and we love our Grandpa! The tenants we have are there until Feb, but Grandpa needs housing by the end of November. How do we get the tenants out? They are good tenants, but Grandpa is way more important to us (& we would not charge him rent....he's helped us so much over the years with nary a hint for us to pay him back, and we're going to help him now!). Thanks!

A: If you have a valid lease with your tenants which runs through February, 2022, you can't force them to leave before then. A lease is a contract. Your best course may be to try to negotiate a buyout.
