The Eviction Process

California has very detailed legal requirements for terminating a tenancy. As a landlord, you must be in strict compliance with eviction procedures. If you are not, you may lose your case in court, be required to pay your tenant’s attorney fees and then start the eviction process all over again. This course will review the California eviction process, offer tips for expediting your case and provide guidance in navigating through some of the more difficult issues that arise during the eviction process.


Landlord/Tenant Law 101

Whether you are a new rental property owner or a seasoned investor, understanding California rental housing laws is an important part of being an effective and successful landlord. This seminar will walk you through advertising, the application process and leasing. You will also learn how to respond to common lease violations, how to terminate the tenancy and the proper use and disposition of the security deposit.


Termination Notices

The first step in terminating a tenancy is drafting a legally appropriate termination notice. Eviction cases are often lost because the landlord served an incorrect eviction notice, did not provide sufficient documentation or used improper wording in the eviction notice. This seminar will discuss common lease violations, how to serve a proper eviction notice and how to provide the right documentation. You will also learn techniques for drafting termination notices.


Rent Control & Just Cause

Understanding the legal requirements that pertain to your property can be difficult, especially with recent changes in rent control and just cause ordinances.

New Laws

New real estate laws are passed every year that may require legal and operational changes for your property. This seminar will provide a comprehensive review of recently passed legislation that impacts the rental housing industry.


Question & Answer Lunch & Learn

Lunch & Learns are an effective way for property management staff members to have lunchtime conversations about topics of interest that impact their property.
