  1. "Filing a case" involves getting a court date. A court date just does not magically appear. The court clerk looks into a calendar and depending on the court's schedule makes a court date 3-6 weeks in advance only After the notice has expired. Otherwise, any landlord can prepare a notice and whether or not the tenant has paid or not, or if the landlord simply does not like the way the tenant looks at his girlfriend can ruin some tenant's record with a formal eviction. anyone else please?
  2. I think you're wrong Reenzz I've read that the "eviction" takes place only once a judge schedules a "court date" and hears both sides to a dispute--and the "court date" happens whobviously after the expiration of a 3 day, 30 day or 60 day notice and the Landlord notices that the events leading to the notice have not been remedied and thereafter calls the court clerk to schedule an eviction. I know pretty much that notices do not get filed, that's just seems to be common sense. Any landlord can send whatever notices it feels is in accordance or has a gut feeling on Only a Judge can file an eviction and record it, the way a Deed or a Mortgage is recorded with the county clerk. In fact, I'm pretty sure this is the case. I've been living as a roommate, although not on any formal lease for 2 and a half years, on a month to month tenancy, a RECENT (30 minutes ago) google search indicated as such, given the length of my month to month tenancy (2 yrs),-- a 60 day notice is required. Once a court date is scheduled with the clerk, depending on its busy schedule, it could be 3-4 weeks into the future add that to the days in the Notice and we're looking at 1 month and a half of me trying to amass enough money to move elsewhere and then pay back this landlord back-rent with interest once I get settled. Yes, I'm pretty sure this is the case, I just need someone with legal experience to confirm it. Can anyone confirm this, please? Please don't make hasty conclusions as to I want to know how long I can live rent free before an eviction gets filed, I have the best of intentions and am a religious person who will pay back my landlord when I move elsewhere as I am expected a huge lump sum of money from a Trust in 3 months, it's just the landlord keeps saying he needs the money now. Thank you, in advance, for any constructive advice....
  3. Hello, I'm a Roommate living in California, paying $800 a month directly to the landlord on a month to month basis; The Landlord wants to evict me, because after 2 years of paying on time or early, I have fallen on tough times and simply cannot afford $800 a month. I have been paying him piece meal these last 3 months ever since the Federal Government shutdown. He's been accepting it. Recently, he said I could pay him weekly at $150 a week, I plan to pay him the week beginning Monday March 11, 2019 $150 and the week beginning Monday March 18, 2019, $150 but the week beginning Monday March 25, 2019, I cannot pay him anything, I need my resources on other essentials such as food etc. Someone in my situation who lives in California and is not under a lease, but a month to month roommate, who shares 1 room in addition to 3 other roommates, who are not related to me, nor are friends, just acquaintances, How much time do I have before the Landlord files in the state of California, an Unlawful Detainer for non-payment of rent until the formal eviction? I would move just before the eviction gets filed and surrender the keys only because I have no other option and I'd use whatever I'd save for a security deposit elsewhere. My main concern is to not have a formal eviction on my record which would make it almost impossible to find tenancy elsewhere. So in order to avoid a formal eviction on my record, here in California state, I would surrender my house keys to the Landlord in how much time? Before a Landlord Tenant Judge issues an eviction date so that I can present my side of the story? How much time is that? The Landlord claims he will serve me with a 3 day notice, but I have been living there for 2 years (paying rent in full on time and often early) and only the last 3 months have I been short on rent. I get my mail here so .... Isn't a 30 day notice required and then there is a court date 3-4 weeks away? So, how much am I looking at before a formal eviction gets filed and ruins my prospects for tenancy elsewhere? In the above example 30 days (amount of days of a 30 day notice) then 3-4 weeks later when an eviction court date is set up, so....1 month and 2 weeks? So is it 1 month and 2 weeks? Thank you so much for any useful and decent help you could provide me. I'm so worried. I will pay him what I owe him when I get back on track again and I've told him that, but he is very demanding. Thank you, again.
