This seems to be happening a lot. The language has nothing to do with whether a pipe is inside or outside of a wall. Under the plain language of the CCR, if a pipe supplies water to multiple units, the COA is responsible. But, once a pipe branches off to provide water to a single unit, the owner...Read more »
The current caregiver gave notice of resignation at 7:40am on Saturday, 28 Jan, that his last day of employment would be Sunday, 29 January, but now he won't leave the premises. He says he can take as long as he needs to move out and find a place to live. Is this true? Is there a CA law or... Read more »
You should contact a lawyer who handles real estate matters for landlords. S/he will know what the caregiver's rights are, and what your rights are. You definitely have the right to have him removed from your property as soon as he decided to resign from his job. I am not an expert in this...Read more »
It looks like the landlord is keeping the previous tenant’s security deposit as your security deposit in lieu of refunding the previous tenant’s and you depositing a new one. So you have been unjustly enriched unless you repay the previous tenant.
Jury Trial set in the next 48 hours. Trying to figure out how to obtain compensation for slumlord that is trying to evict me for "non payment" even though they were over paid, and after I contacted the city and county?
recently signed a lease to rent a home. I am now dealing with this landlord that keeps asking for all of these fees. The fees were not stated on the lease and I have been finding out about them as I go. he First asked for a utilities fee and then a renters insurance and now he wants another payment... Read more »
You should review the lease agreement thoroughly. If those fees are not started in the lease then the landlord has no grounds to make you pay them. Regarding your question about backing out of the lease and getting a refund, you should consult the lease as well because you may be in beach of...Read more »

If the person is a danger to themselves or others, call the police and ask for a 5150 assessment. A restraining order cannot be used to evict an unrelated co-tenant. 60 days seems to refer to a notice to vacate, but currently evictions in Alameda County are only allowed in very limited...Read more »
That sounds like an awful situation you were in and I am glad you have made progress to get away from the "suspect." The Landlord may be able to evict you if they had no connection to the suspect and depending on the reason that they evicted you. If it already went to court and you lost,...Read more »
Each unit is assigned 1 parking spot. Renters are using their designated parking spot to park their non-operational car and have created a 2nd “parking spot” to park their operating car. That 2nd “spot” blocks the path going in & out of the back gate creating a safety hazard and just... Read more »
The HOA referred to creating or designating a "no parking area." This might be distinct from enforcing the existing rule of "one parking spot." If there is an applicable rule in place, a meeting and a vote is not required. Ask the mgmt company what they mean and why a vote is...Read more »
Generally, unless you consent, a 3rd party cannot listen to a private phone call. Since your landlord told you the communication was private, you had a reasonable belief that nobody else could hear your conversation. So, yes, technically this would be Eavesdropping in violation of PC 632. This...Read more »
A residence provided as part of the employment bargain is treated very differently from separately leased premises. An employee provided with a residence as part of the employment can be evicted immediately without advanced notice.
I used to own a restaurant and sold it almost 10 years ago in 2013. The lease they were on expired over 5 years ago. I got a notice in the mail about notice of belief of abandonment for unpaid rent since November. The place has been sold twice since I sold it how am I responsible if... Read more »
Your legal position will depend on such factors as whether you were ever released from the lease, how the extension was accomplished (option, automatic?) and other facts specific to your situation. Do not speak with the firm until after you have had a consultation and document review with counsel,...Read more »
There is no good/easy way to make him pay half. It is the Landlord that has a right to collet rent; you have a right to contribution, but it is not worth pursuing against someone who moved out. If you want to keep the place without your ex, you can talk to your landlord about changing the lease...Read more »
In general, landlords do not have the right to enter a tenant's yard or throw away a tenant's belongings without the tenant's permission. Landlords must generally give advance notice before entering a rental property, unless there is an emergency or the tenant has given prior...Read more »
My landlord never gave me my contract to sign and after a year he was trying to evict me and so we went to court and he showed a contract that I "signed electronically". I never signed this contract, what can I do?
Forgery by definition, is illegal and a landlord cannot forge a tenant's signature on a lease agreement or any other document. If you believe that your landlord forged your initials or signature on a lease contract that you never signed, you may have grounds to take legal action against your...Read more »
It is unclear what exactly you are asking here. Whether the lease is new or there is an amendment to an existing lease, you should have a signature from all parties for it to be "binding". So for example, if the landlord has an existing lease, then drafts up an amendment to the lease...Read more »
My business was destroyed by COVID. I got every grant and loan possible and spent every dime in the corporation but couldn't make it to the end of the 5 year lease. The landlord doesn't care, wants 12K for rent, taxes, etc. I'm not able to pay anything because I am unemployed (2... Read more »
