    I agree with the other responses in that you should request a walk through before you move out. You want to be clear on what he wants to deduct for. Moreover, the landlord must provide you with an accounting of the security deposit after you move. I'm also curious as to the reason for wanting you to move. You stated that there are city violations. Please be more specific. If the landlord is asking you to move due to code violations that make the premises uninhabitable, he needs to...

    You should definitely find and hire a landlord - tenant attorney in Oakland. With that said, if the tenant is a nuisance you can serve a 3 day notice to quit and since she has a boyfriend living in the unit that is not permitted under the lease you can serve a 3 day notice to perform or quit. Good luck.

    Your landlord's actions are completely unacceptable. As stated by Mr. Chen, there are certain situations that your landlord can enter without notice and this is not one of them. You should send her a letter discussing her improper actions so that you have documentation if needed in the future.

In other words, the tenant can only be evicted for something he or she did, or did not do.

    You can sue in both courts if the amounts your are seeking do not cross over. In an unlawful detainer your typically seek past due rent as indicated in the notice and holdover damages which covers rent from the end of the notice period to the date of trial. You cannot ask for those damages in a small claims case, or you will be seeking the same thing twice. If the tenant moves out before trial the eviction case typically becomes a standard civil case for breach of contract. If you have...

    Most often the landlord-tenant relationship is governed by a written contract. You should review your lease agreement to find what it states regarding parking. It does seem appropriate to offer parking to tenants without a garage. Good Luck

    It is illegal for landlords to rent un-permitted dwellings. If he is being forced to evict you by the county, then you should be compensated for relocating. You should contact a local landlord-tenant attorney to discuss your options.
