Sacramento, CA asked in Employment Law and Real Estate Law for California

Q: Had onsite manager past 3 years. they also earned a living by doing ALL JOBS. If i evict them, can they sue me?

They helped us for 3 years as manager and handled everything. they would evict tenants, flip the units do everything like paint and, patch holes, clean all the roaches and mold. everything to make sure the apartment looked brand new for a new tenant. A new tenant they would find on their own. they did lease signing, rent collection, issued fines and collected past tenants debts. Also, Landscaping, trash pickup, cleaned gutters, trimmed trees fixed the blacktop, pressure washed exterior resurfaced the laundry rooms floors, find and replace the washers and dryers with tech the residents get to use to pay and operate the laundry machine$$. They had to do everything month after month. most of what they needed, they would pay with the money they earned out of their pockets and i would pay them back on a net 60 schedule. maybe. if they reminded me enough. most months i only paid 1/3 or 1/2 of what they asked for. which was a fraction of anyone else charge. can they sue me for anything
