California Tenant Law

The California contains rulings on these matters

1]Creation of Tenancy, Rents and Rental Agreements

The rental agreement can be either vocal or printed, for a preset tenure or on a monthly or weekly basis. The written agreement must indicate the parties, describe the property, specify the rent, rental period, date of starting and rent payment dates, fine for late payment of rent. This rental agreement must be dated and all parties involved must sign it.

2]Security Deposits

Security deposit is any advance sum to the landowner to be put to use to adjust failure to pay rent, repair damages made on the premises or cleaning upon evacuation of the property


All persons in California are equal and are allowed to equal place to stay, advantages, etc., no matter what their gender, race, color, religion, ancestry, or disability. Age discrimination is also forbidden.


Landlords can refuse to rent out to any tenant with a pet. An exception to this are properly trained dogs belonging to any one of the disability classes of tenants.

5]Condition, Maintenance and Repairs

The landlord must maintain his premises in a condition fit to live in for any prospective tenant.

6]Tenant Privacy and the Landlord's Right to Enter the Dwelling

The landlord may enter the tenant's premises only for paticular reasons, during normal working hours and only after the tenant has been given 24 hour notice of the landlord's requirement to visit his premises.

7]Tenant Defaults and Termination of Tenancy

Tenants can vacate upon termination of the tenancy period or in other circumstances decided mutually.

8]Eviction Procedure and Landlord Retaliation

A tenant who has failed to pay his rent or has not vacated the property at the end of the rental agreement period may be evicted.
