I just filled my answer today and I’m moved out as of today. I don’t agree with them so I’m waiting for the trial date I’m guessing. Do I need to call them and do a walk through and turn over the keys today? I’m not sure what to do next.
You can file an amended answer under Code of Civil Procedure Section 472, and indicate on the answer that you have moved out/surrendered possession. See box 4.a of Judicial Council form UD-105.
You should turn in the keys - preferably bringing a witness along, and requesting a receipt (although the landlord/landlord's attorney is not legally required to give you a receipt). Before doing so, make sure to video the condition of the unit (again, it would be best to do so with a witness) to minimize future disputes about that.
Once possession is no longer an issue, the case is supposed to convert from an unlawful detainer to an ordinary civil lawsuit - see Civil Code Section 1952.3.
