    Answered . Has the shop owner received a 3-day notice to pay or a summons and complaint? If he does not pay the rent to the landlord, you can all be evicted. You may want to talk to him and/or the landlord about taking over the lease. You can add yourself as a defendant in the unlawful detainer (eviciton) lawsuit by filing a pre-judgment claim of right of possession with the court.
