After almost one year of refusing to give me a copy of my lease, entering without permission or proper notice, and not wanting to fix things my landlord sent me an email stating that they will not be renewing my lease. Only received a copy of it a few weeks ago for the first time. What are my rights?
You may have a claim for retaliatory eviction under Civil Code Section 1942.5.
You should promptly consult a local landlord-tenant attorney to get a more complete idea of your legal rights and options. Many offer a free initial consultation.
Based upon the limited facts provided you should seek a consultation with an attorney. Typically landlords are not required to pay for their tenants moving expenses, especially since landlords in California generally do not have to provide any reason to terminate a tenancy.
With that said, it would be worth your time to get a consultation to determine what rights you have and what potential claims, if any, you can assert.
