Avoiding Legal Pitfalls in California Evictions

October 16, 2018 | 10:00 am PST | 1:00 pm EST

Unfortunately, evictions – or unlawful detainer actions – are a form of recourse that apartment owners occasionally have to perform. California has some of the most tenant-friendly laws of any state in the country, and there are several legal pitfalls that owners and managers should be aware of, in order to prevent losses and future litigation. The real estate law firm Brewer Offord & Pedersen LLP is excited to be teaming up with the American Apartment Owners Association to present an informative webinar about evictions in California.

Attendees will hear from attorneys Ashlee D. Gonzales and Adam L. Pedersen, who will provide a detailed look at evictions, including:

  • Meeting legal requirements for notice and service
  • Handling hostile tenants
  • Avoiding retaliation, harassment, and discrimination claims
  • Responding to common tenant defenses to eviction
  • Preparing for trial and obtaining post-trial relief
  • And much more!

How to Prevent Emotional Support Animal Discrimination Lawsuits

November 8, 2018 | 11:00 am PST | 2:00 pm EST


Emotional support animal requests have become borderline absurd as of late, leaving landlords confused and vulnerable to law suits. We’ve invited Attorney/Author, Robert Friedman to provide updates on the latest laws and answer these frequently asked questions:

  • What is the difference between a service animal, a therapy dog, a psychiatric service dog and an emotional support animal (ESA)?
  • Does an ESA need specialized training?
  • What exceptions are there to the law?
  • What documentation may a landlord request from the tenant who needs an ESA?
  • Can the landlord charge a pet security deposit or extra rent for an ESA?
  • Can animals other than cats and dogs act as ESAs?
  • How much are tenants being awarded for discrimination against ESAs?
  • What special lease language should be used for ESAs?
  • What laws protect the landlord if the tenant misrepresents the need for an ESA?

Inspecting and Monitoring for Bed Bugs: A Path to Early Detection, Limiting Cost and Community-wide Management

December 6, 2018 | 11:00 am PST | 2:00 pm EST

Inspection and monitoring is the core of bed bug management. Not only can inspection and monitoring lead to the identification of a problem but it can lead to early detection which leads to reducing the cost associated with bed bug management. Also, community-wide inspection and monitoring programs can help manage the budget associated with bed bug management and improve conditions across entire communities. These tools and programs can also provide legal protection if and when a lawsuit is pursued by a tenant by demonstrating that management is being proactive about bed bug issues.

This webinar will discuss:

  • The proper way to inspect for bed bugs
  • Outline the different version of monitors available
  • How to combine inspection and monitors to improve the quality of life across entire communities
