The go-to survival guide for California tenants
California tenants have many rights, especially those lucky enough to have rent control. But knowing and enforcing these rights can be difficult. Fortunately, California Tenants' Rights, the leading tenant guide for more than 45 years, provides all the information and key forms tenants need to:
- find a good rental in a competitive market
- understand the rules regarding service and support animals
- deal with a problem roommate or noisy neighbor
- stop landlord intrusions of privacy
- get the landlord to make repairs or deal with mold or bedbugs
- fight illegal discrimination, harassment, or retaliation
- break a lease with minimal liability
- respond to a late rent or termination notice
- get as much of the deposit back as possible, and
- fight an eviction, with line-by-line instructions on completing required forms.
The 22nd edition includes updated information on state eviction rules and forms, local rent control ordinances, and tenant rights to sublet on Airbnb.
