California Lease Termination Best Practices

September 5, 2019 | 12:00 pm PST | 3:00 pm EST
California landlord legal webinar

Whether the owner of a property decides to sell their property, find a new tenant, or move in to the unit, terminating a lease can be unexpectedly complex. Many landlords and property managers run afoul of the specific requirements under the law and end up wasting unnecessary time and money on the termination process.

Often times, the lease between the landlord and tenant can be deceiving, and the tenant likely entitled to more rights than enumerated in the lease. The penalties for a violation of a tenant’s rights can be steep, and we can help walk you through the termination process in an attempt to avoid those penalties.
