Los Angeles, CA asked in Landlord - Tenant for California

Q: I am processing of buying the house in Fresno, CA. The seller said that she served 60 days notice. Can I evict tenants?

The lease was expired in 2020. Tenant stayed for 7 years.

The seller’s 60 days notice says that “move out in 60 days or to get into the contract of buyer”.

I want to move in by myself.

Tenant is paying rent.

A: 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 assistance programs in the county where the property is located. Consult a local attorney.
