If there is a provision in the lease permitting the landlord to end the lease early and for any reason even if the tenant doesn’t violate anything such as the landlords moving back into the house. Is that legal and they don’t have to pay any relocation fees?
So much more info is needed to answer this.
This response does not create any attorney-client relationship. Only a signed written agreement can do that. This answer is only in relation to the facts presented and may change according to unidentified facts. Always consult with an attorney.
Unless the tenancy is subject to a local rent control/eviction control ordinance (and I don't believe Palo Alto has one), it should be possible for a lease to contain a valid early termination clause.
If that issue has come up, you should promptly consult a local landlord-tenant attorney to review the lease and any other relevant documents, and to advise you about your rights and options.
