Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for.
Where in CA do you live and is there rent control where you live?
There are no rent controls in your city so the landlord does not have to renew a lease. You may want to see if he is agreeable to allowing you to move back in at the old rate once his work is done. He is not obligated to make such an agreement but may be willing to do so.
Sorry for the bad news but that is where you stand legally.
