I own a 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom condo. I live in one bedroom-bathroom, and rent out the other two. It worked out great for 4 years UNTIL I rented to a real estate agent.
Big mistake. He was always asking me, my other roommate and my neighbors in our building if they were interested in hiring him to list their unit. Annoying!!!
It got so frustrating that I asked him to stop; he refused. So I then gave him 30 days notice to vacate without explanation. (He was a month-to-month tenant.) In the future, I added a "non-solicitation" clause into my lease agreement.
I know that California generally considers non-compete clauses in employment agreements void. Mine isn't a non-compete clause; he's free to work in any industry during and after his tenancy. Is the new clause kosher under CA law?
