California Tenant Law

The following points are discussed in the California Tenant Law:

1] Creation of Tenancy, Rents and Rental Agreements

The landlord and tenant can get the rental agreement done vocally or have it in writing. The tenure can either be yearly, monthly or weekly. It is a standard practice to state the landlord's name, tenant's name, a description of the property, the rent, the period of rent, date of initiation and date of payment of rent as well as the charges for late payment of rent. The rental agreement is then to be signed by both the landlord and the tenant.

2] Security Deposits

At the beginning of the rental period, the landlord accepts a some money as an advance fee for the purpose of repairing damages, adjusting failure to pay rent and clean up of the premises which has to be done once the tenant checks out . This sum of money is called the security deposit.

3] Discrimination

The California tenant law states that all persons are regarded as equal and are permitted to enjoy the rights of equal housing, facilities, etc., without discriminating them on grounds of sex, race, skin color, faith, origin, or physical disability. Age discrimination is also illegal.

4] Pets

Only tenants belonging to the disabled class are allowed to own trained dogs and the landlord has no right to reject rental to them. In all other cases, the landlord can turn down the right of tenancy to anybody with a pet.

5] Condition, Maintenance and Repairs

According to the California tenant law, the landlord is to maintain his premises in a way favorable to living for tenant.

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

The landlord can enter the tenant's dwelling only for specific reasons, in work hours and after the tenant receives at least 24 hour notice of the landlord's necessity to visit his premises.

7] Tenant Defaults and Termination of Tenancy

A tenancy can finish at the end of the rental period or may have an early ending decided jointly by both parties involved.

8] Eviction Procedure and Landlord Retaliation

If the tenant does not empty the house at the end of the rental period, or defaults payment of rent, then the tenant law of California entitles the owner to evacuate the tenant.
