I am living with two roommates they found a new place and the landlord told me I had to move because he already has people wanting to rent it he never asked if I was still going to keep renting or anything i told him i wanted to keep the place he said no he has people wanting to rent it for more. Since then he has people coming in working doing repairs everyday they have torn out the shower stall an a bunch of stuff and for the last week he has been coming just walking through the door yelling to get out an yelling at my son in law who was visiting saying who the bell are you get out an saying he's having the power shut off tomorrow an he's coming to take the doors off an today he took the burners off the stove so I can't cook he won't let me keep renting without valid reason an keeps barging in my home yelling he hasn't given me any type of notice to move or eviction.
You should immediately talk to a local landlord-tenant attorney. You may also wish to call the police and the local code enforcement agency (since some of what he has done seems to violate applicable health or safety codes).
The landlord can't evict you without giving you an appropriate notice, and must also go through the courts if a tenant improperly refuses to leave.
A landlord's rights of entry are also strictly limited by Civil Code Section 1954. He can only enter for a proper reason, and upon proper notice.
It sounds like you have some valid claims for nuisance, (probably) violations of Civil Code Section 1940.2, violations of your quiet enjoyment rights, etc. If he turns off the power, you would have additional claims, including under Civil Code Section 789.3.
In any event, it sounds like you should move, and sue for damages-there is no point dealing with such a crazy and lawless landlord.
