I've been living there for a couple months, had keys, he changed the locks w/o ever discussing anything with me. There was verbal agreement only, I'm not on the lease but I "did" pay rent. I have nowhere to go. Please help!
No. It sounds like wrongful eviction. You can ask the police and the Los Angeles Housing + Community Investment Department for assistance. The police may help you get back in and get keys or at least help you get your things.
