If a tenant does not pay rent and a 3 day pay or quit notice has been issued. Legally how long to th tenants have to be out?
Employment / Labor Attorney
California law strictly prohibits "self-help," so the answer to your question is that the tenant can stay until the landlord files a law suit and obtains a judgment from the court, and the sheriff enforces the judgment. Other factors, such as a tenant's bankruptcy, can delay eviction.
