If it is your house (title is in your name) and there are no co-owners then nobody can kick you out or move in without your consent. Find a landlord-tenant eviction attorney ASAP to help you kick them out. (You should have never let them in.)
To begin with, Homeowner's insurance doesn't cover landlord liabilities at all, so not covering liability arising out of a tenant's Rottweiler/pit bull is just one claim of many for which you will not be covered. You will need Landlord Insurance. Confirm with your Insurance Agent.
You hire an attorney to file a quiet title action (court case) for you. This state of affairs usually is the result of having failed to hire an attorney when you acquired your interest. That would have been cheap. The quiet title action is going to be way more expensive. Preventing problems is...Read more »

How much rent, or for how long it is owed, is not connected to a landlord's right to enter the premises to show it. If a 3 day notice to pay rent or quit has expired, an unlawful detainer (eviction) action may be filed. A landlord may enter the property by following the procedures in California...Read more »
I rent 2 rooms in a house, but my rental agreement specifies I have nonexclusive use of the two rooms. Do I still have an expectation of privacy and quiet enjoyment? Can my landlord use this wording to restrict guests?
This sounds like a lease that an attorney did not draft. But it says what it says, so you need to deal with it. Your lease gives you a right of possession to some real property. If it is non-exclusive it means that you cannot exclude another party who may have possessory rights too (this is...Read more »
We purchased an occupied multi-family property, however the previous property owner did not provide us with copies of the tenants' lease/rental agreements. How can we obtain copies of these agreements? Are the tenants obligated to provide copies to us? If not, is there any other source? Do we have... Read more »
Great question. Your first step should be asking the seller for the agreements. There is a decent chance that the purchase and sales agreement you used to buy the property requires them to provide this information. That failing, you can always ask the tenants. Just be aware that you are bound...Read more »

Lease expired so I asked to renew it. Was told my house is going to be sold and I have till next month to get out. I asked why I didn't get a notice and they stated"Oh, we taped one to your door in September". I never found a note taped to my door. I never got a copy in the mail, never served, no... Read more »
He has to serve you personally. Or, give you a 60 days move out Notice. Besides, he accepted your payment for this month, so Just get a lawyer to represent you to tell the Judge you were never served personally and did not get a move out notice. Best of luck.
I am afraid that saying "no" to a potential buy out from my rent controlled apartment could result in my landlord starting eviction procedures. As a consequence, he keeps "pressing" to reschedule one to one ( off the record) meetings with me.
No you cannot be kicked out of your apartment for saying no. You may be asked to negotiate by the landlord or his attorney and depending on whether your landlord is not violating any rent control laws, you may be asked to move out for an amount mutually agreeable to both parties. However, there...Read more »

You do have legal rights if the unit is not up to Code or the maintenance work has created a dangerous condition. Your first step is to talk to the landlord or property manager.

To evict someone you have to have a superior right to possession of the property than the person you are trying to evict, and the proper legal grounds to do so. If your friend's uncle has some ownership interest in the property, or he is acting on behalf of someone who does, then he likely can...Read more »
The light fixture just fell from an apartment that we just rent. Luckily, no one got injured. But, we, as college students, still felt that this incident was very dangerous.

The tenant sends me a text that they are coming to view the property. However she text me 30min-5hr before. Is she allowed to bring people to view the property and if so is there a certain amount of time she needs to give us before bringing people.
Yes, she can show the property to prospective tenants while you still live there, but you are entitled to written notice, and 24 hours is presumed a reasonable amount of time. If you want to insist on your right to proper notice, you should carefully read Civil Code section 1954:...Read more »
