CA landlord tenant laws, landlord's responsibility when rental unit has pests, termites

Asked about 6 years ago - San Diego, CA

Our landlord just told us we have to be out of our apartment for three days while they tent for termites. They told us they will prorate our rent and deduct three days off our rent for the time we will be out of the apartment. They are only giving us 2 1/2 weeks notice to be out. Do they have to pay for our living expenses for the days we are forced to be out? For example, our hotel and food?
