As a California landlord, you understand there are various obligations and responsibilities that come with this role. It is prudent to fully understand your legal obligations in order to minimize your chance for issues with your tenants. Knowing your rights and responsibilities can reduce your exposure to financial risks and legal complications going forward.
You may own and operate the rented property, but there are limits to what you can do while it is currently occupied by a tenant. Tenants have rights, and courts to do not look favorably on violations of these entitlements. You may find it particularly helpful to seek a complete evaluation of your case so you can fully understand your role.
