You are likely living in an illegal dwelling. Contact the Los Angeles Housing + Community Investment Department to find out if it is an illegal dwelling. If so, you will be entitled to substantial relocation assistance and possibly refund of the illegally collected rent. See my case Carter v. Cohen, 188 cal.app.4th 1038 (2010).
