We received a 60 Day Notice of Termination of Tenancy from our Landlord. We've received minor complaints throughout our 14 year history and correct those shortly thereafter.
- However it is not stated in the notice as to the reasons why we received the eviction notice.
- it was also never given to us in person
- We paid rent for November 5th - December 5th but the last day to vacate on the notice is on November 24th?
- they are also enforcing a no pets policy on our cat on a lease that expired 9 years ago (Weve been on month to month since) and when there's other pets in the other units that are NOT service dogs.
- we have reason to believe that 3 of the 9 units in the building are somewhat be it familial associated with each other as well as the property manager.
You should contact an attorney who specializes in evictions. You should also contact the San Mateo County Bar Association and request the name(s) of legal aid centers in your county and/or the names and contact information of eviction attorneys in your county. Best of luck to you and your family.
If you had a written lease, and remained in the premises while paying rent after the term ended, then the law is clear that the lease is deemed renewed on the same terms and conditions as the written lease. (Civ. Code, sect. 1945.) Thus, the terms of the no pets policy in your lease would still govern.
If you are not covered by a local rent control ordinance, then California law is clear that a landlord can terminate your month to month tenancy (here with a 60 day notice because you have lived in the property for over a year), and does not have to have a "reason."
The notice does not have to be given to you in person, as the law allows posting and mailing as a form of service.
I suggest talking to an attorney for a consultation, so that the attorney can evaluate the matter to determine whether there is anything else that may be of assistance to you.
