Residential Tenants' & Landlords' Rights & Responsibilities
What should a tenant do if his or her apartment needs repairs? Can a landlord force a tenant to move? How many day's notice does a tenant have to give a landlord before the tenant moves? Can a landlord raise a tenants' rent? The California Department of Consumer Affairs' publication "California Tenants - A Guide to Residential Tenants' and Landlords' Rights and Responsibilities" answers these and many other frequently asked questions. The publication is an information guide and practical resource for both tenants and landlords. For your convenience, a free copy of this publication is available in the Community Development Department or you can view it online at www.dca.ca.gov/publications/landlordtenantbook
