Do you have a written lease for four years? Do you have a copy? Are you current on your rent? If so, I would respond to the attorney and tell him that there is a mistake. Best of luck to you.
Free consultation. Direct line- 855-637-0938 .24/7. Video/Phone/In-Person. firstname.lastname@example.org. I provide my clients with honest, thoughtful advice and diligent, vigorous representation in a number of practice areas. I serve Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, Santa Barbara and San Diego Counties. I wouldn't take any of my answers on avvo.com as legal advice since there are still too many factors that need to be discussed before I can give you a reliable opinion.
If you have a written lease, are current in the rent and not in breach of any other lease covenant, it appears the 30 notice to vacate is improper. I agree with my fellow lawyers, send a copy of the lease by certified mail to the attorney for the landlady and request the reason why you received the 30 day notice. Many landlord/tenant attorneys will give you a free consultation. Seek one out on the AVVO tab if your certified mail letter does not clear this up.
