Hello- my name is Anabel. Today I got a Notice of termination of tenancy letter from my landlord. I called my landlord to questioned her the reason why I was being evicted , since I haven't broken any rules. Her response was I don't have to give you a reason. I been renting my apartment for the past year and I have Never been given any type of warnings/ complains by my landlord or neighbors.However for the past two months the apartments are under a new management. But like I said I haven't broken any rules or have any type of warnings by my landlord . Just an FYI I haven't even met the new landlord. I feel this is discrimination.
If you have been there for less than a year, your landlord needs to give 30 days notice of the termination of your tenancy. If you have rented there for more than a year, the notice period is 60 days. There's nothing discriminatory about it, and no fault on the tenant's part is required. You can be the best tenant on Earth and still have your tenancy ended this way. If there's no way for you to continue to rent there under the new management, the only thing to do is make plans to move.
I am not your attorney. Avvo and its users acknowledge that no attorney-client relationship is established by using avvo.com. Nothing published in this website constitutes actual legal advice. You should consult with an attorney of your choice who has experience in your inquired field of law. If you are in California and have questions about estate planning, I'd be happy to receive your call.
Because you are not in a city that has rent control, your landlord may evict you for no reason--this is the law in most of California. However, the landlord can never evict you for an illegal reason, such as discrimination because of race, gender, disability, etc. What is your evidence of discrimination? If you can prove discrimination, you can defend an eviction on that ground, or sue your landlord. However, most of the time, discrimination is difficult to prove.
Important things to remember: 1. The fact that I answered a question that you asked me on line, doesn't make me your lawyer. 2. Make sure that the person whose advice you are taking on this forum knows what he or she is talking about. Lawyers get "points" for answering questions, which improves their ratings, so they are incentivized to answer questions in areas of law they are unfamiliar with. Even if the lawyer is from a different city, that lawyer may not be familiar with LOCAL CITY laws that might affect your tenancy. I have been practicing housing rights law almost exclusively in SoCal for over a decade.
