    Answered . The statute of limitations in CA on a written contract is 4 years so this is right on the line and would depend on the month you moved. As far as your rights being different than from a year lease: no.

    Answered . the statute of limitations is for years from the date you breached your lease agreement by failing to pay as agreed under the lease. How much are you being sued for?
