I was the live in caregiver for my mother who is buying a home in a 60+ trailer park. However, my mom passed away recently and now I am the heir to the property. The HOA has told me that because I am only 54 years old I cannot live in my house, I cannot rent it out to anyone whether they are 60+ or... Read more »
I believe the HOA may be correct. The Fair Housing Act exempts communities intended for people 55-62 or older to discriminate based on familial status. It appears that your mother’s trailer park caters only to residents who are over 60 years old. You have two options: either (1) find someone you...Read more »
Is the landlord recording the common area affecting your property or private areas inside your property? If private, I suggest contacting an attorney ASAP and get a restraining order and claim for possible damages.
The new owner of the foreclosed property needs to go through the eviction process to remove you from the property. If the property is tenant-occupied (as in your case), a 90-day notice is generally required before the bank can start the eviction process. If you have existing lease with the previous...Read more »

If you had the agreement in writing, you would only need to...Read more »
“Self-help” evictions are illegal in California. Turning the water heater off or changing locks are activities that the landlord cannot do during the eviction process.

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 »

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 »

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 »

You should immediately sit down with a Landlord Tenant attorney and/or a personal injury lawyer who handle mold cases. A lot of attorneys don't handle mold cases so you might have to contact a few until you find one. If you find an attorney who can help with both that would be best.

There is a possibility that a judgment creditor will negotiate a settlement for less than the debt amount owed; however, this is never guaranteed. A settlement agreement largely depends upon your circumstances (i.e., negotiation, the creditor, the debt amount, collection history, etc.)....Read more »
