Eviction Defense & Unlawful Detainer

Were You Unlawfully Evicted From Your Home?

California law offers a number of protections for tenants that prevent landlords from kicking them out of their homes without warning or cause. Even if a tenant is doing something wrong – like not paying rent – then the landlord is still required to provide a three day notice demanding payment. Even after those three days pass, the landlord must still file a lawsuit known as an unlawful detainer and then win that case in court. If your landlord kicked you out of your apartment without first completing these steps, then you may have the right to take legal action.

A Landlord Cannot Lock You Out of Your Home

Your landlord is required to give you notice before kicking you out of your apartment. Depending on your situation, they are required to give you either the three-day notice mentioned above, 30-day notice, or 60-day notice if you’ve lived in your apartment for at least a year. Even after issuing a notice, it is illegal for a landlord to lock a tenant out or force them to leave their home without filing and winning an unlawful detainer case in court. If you are forced out of your home before the case is filed or completed, then you may have legal options available to secure the compensation you deserve.

Your landlord must return your security deposit when you move out given the unit in the same condition it was when you move in.
