Termination of Tenancy can be done many ways, depending on the circumstances. The first step and most critical part of the entire process is preparing and serving the notice accurately. Landlords must be sure to not do anything that will make the notice invalid. Common at fault notices that are served include: 3 Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit, 3 Day Notice to Perform a Covenant or Quit, and 3 Day Notice to Quit. Common no fault notices that are served include: 30 Day Notice, 60 Day Notice, 90 Day Notice, or 120 Day Notice. Once the tenants are properly served with the correct notice and the tenants have failed to comply with the notice, once the notice has expired, the landlord can file a lawsuit for an Unlawful Detainer.
Above all, we always highly recommend that all landlords hire a professional to prepare and serve the notice to vacate.
A landlord should never rely on a notice that has not been prepared and served by a professional. It is very important that a landlord understands the negative impact a faulty notice to vacate can have on the entire eviction process. In most cases landlords will have to re-file the entire complaint and must start the entire process all over again.
Even if a landlord is knowledgeable preparing the required court forms, they may not be up to date with current laws.

California State Laws for
Just Cause Eviction and Rent Cap.
The Tenant Protection Act of 2019, aka AB 1482. (“TPA”) The COVID-19 Tenant Relief Act of 2020 (“CTRA”) requires that residential tenants who are natural persons can only be evicted “for cause” whether the property is covered by or exempt from the TPA.
AB 1482, also called the Tenant Protection Act of 2019 Applies statewide rent control to specified properties. The new law affects both rent increases and just cause evictions. The COVID-19 Tenant Relief Act of 2020 (“CTRA”) requires that residential tenants who are natural persons can only be evicted “for cause” whether the property is covered by or exempt from the TRA.
The new law limits the amount that rent can be raised. It states that the rent increase for a 12-month period cannot exceed 5% + percentage change in the cost of living over the previous year’s Consumer Price Index. It also cannot exceed 10% total. Additionally, the landlord is prohibited from increasing the rental rate in more than two increments over a 12-month period. The gross rental rate will not include rent discounts or credits, incentives, or concessions. While gross rental rate is left undefined, it’s advised that all fees charged by the landlord (pet rent, utilities, or month to month fees) be included in the gross rental rate. To calculate the maximum allowable increase over the allowed 5%, refer to Civil Code §1947.12(g)(2) which reads:
“Percentage change in the cost of living” means the percentage change from April 1 of the prior year to April 1 of the current year in the regional Consumer Price Index for the region where the residential real property is located, as published by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. If a regional index is not available, the California Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers for all items, as determined by the Department of Industrial Relations, shall apply.”
Just Cause Provisions
At Fault Reasons
Default in the Payment of Rent
Tenant fails to pay rent as stipulated in the lease agreement and any Notice to Pay Rent or Quit has expired. You can begin the unlawful detainer.
Breach of a Material Term of the Lease
Is described in the Code of Civil Procedure §1161, subdivision 3, including (but not limited to) violation of a lease provision after being issued a written notice to correct the violation. If the condition is curable, such as removing an unauthorized pet or roommate, a Notice to Perform Covenant or Quit must be given.
Nuisance Activity or Waste
This is when the tenants are causing serious damage or harm to the property or common areas. It applies to neighboring units as well, i.e. if they are damaging surrounding areas and units or creating excessive noise and refusing to comply when asked. Further outlined in Civil Code 1161 subdivision 4, if the offense is curable, a Notice to Perform Covenant or Quit must be given.
Criminal activity or criminal threat by the tenant to the property, including any common areas, as defined in subdivision A of Section 422 of the Penal Code. Applies on or off the residential property, that is directed at any owner or agent of the owner of the residential real property.
Assigning or Subletting
If the tenant is subletting their room or unit and it is not allowed in the lease, they are subject to eviction. The same applies in the instance of assigning the lease (transferring the lease to another party).
Refusal to Provide Access
This occurs when you are trying to enter the home, whether it be for an annual inspection or to show the property for sale, and the tenant refuses access to the home, despite the notice they were given. Landlords are allowed to enter the home for a set list of reasons and if the tenant continually denies access despite getting written notice and they refuse to reschedule, their lease can be terminated.
