Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
What are your specific questions about the notice you received? How much notice were you given? Do you have a lease for a set term?
Did you mean to say that the landlord is lowering your rent?
Are you in an area of California that has rent controls? (And if so, where?)
What is the date of the change on the notice?
How is the month-to-month changing?
What information would you like from a lawyer?
I understand that you just got the lease. When will the change be effective? I'm trying to determine if you received proper notice, which means I need to know when the landlord is trying to make the change happen. I really need you to answer each and every question I've asked so I have enough information to tell you what it is that you want to know.
Is your building subject to San Francisco's rent controls? If you don't know, when was it built and what type of structure is it? How is the landlord trying to change your lease? Section 1162 of the Code of Civil Procedure just talks about how to serve a notice. So, when you say, "Says going back to original lease prescribed 1162 code of civil procedure," I don't know what that means. If the landlord is asking you to leave, what is his reason for doing so?
Often, when people only present a set of facts, the issues that jump out at us aren't necessarily the things you're curious about. Too often, without a list of questions, we'll wind up telling you things you already knew. With that in mind, what are your specific questions about this fact pattern?
We seem to be having some trouble communicating. This happens sometimes due to the limitations of this forum. It's time for me to sign off for the evening, so I'm going to open your question up to other experts. Perhaps you'll have better luck with one of them. Good luck.
I am sorry, but I do not understand your post.
What is your specific question?
