In the past several months I’ve received many more calls from tenants about late fees and rent payment methods, leading me to believe that some landlord “working group” decided to focus on this method of tenant harassment.
Storage is one of the first things the new landlord will remove from a pesky, low-paying, long-term tenant–an obvious ploy to begin to make a rent-controlled tenant uncomfortable.
You are not responsible for finding another tenant. That’s the landlord’s job! If he doesn’t try to find another tenant he is not mitigating his damages.
Getting eviction advice from your landlord is like getting dating advice from that uncle who’s spent most of his adult life in prison–your landlord wants to evict anything that moves.
The new condo conversion law provides that that any tenant (not just elderly, catastrophically ill or disabled tenants) must be offered a life time lease.
California Civil Code §1950.6 governs the collection of application fees, a namby-pamby, bullshit law does not contain a remedy for its violation.
