Your Rights as a Commercial Tenant

In California, commercial tenants have similar protections as residential tenants. That is to say, you have significant legal rights as granted by the state. Your commercial landlord cannot decide to kick you out on a whim or without warning.

Here are a few things to consider for commercial landlord evictions and UDs:

  • Notices: Your commercial landlord must notify you when they intend to remove you from their commercial property. In most cases, at least a 60-day notice is required to notify a commercial tenant that they will not be offered a lease renewal. A similar notice window may be required to file an unlawful detainer action, which gives the tenant time to challenge it.
  • Lease expiration: If you signed a fixed lease, then there should be a definite date when the lease expires. The lease should also tell you how you can extend the lease if you want. Commercial landlords will have a harder time evicting you if your fixed lease is not expired, or if you were not given any chance to extend it.
  • Agreements: Did you actually agree to move out of your commercial property sooner than the end of your signed lease? Your commercial landlord may have made you sign an agreement to leave early without clearly explaining the agreement’s terms. If you suspect this is the case, please call (888) 495-0556 today.
  • Occupation or business model: When a commercial tenant is actually employed by their landlord, eviction processes can look a little differently. In such a case, your commercial landlord-employer can file for an UD the moment you are technically no longer under their employment.
