Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Dear Customer, thank you for choosing Just Answer. I am very sorry to learn of this 3 day notice. Unfortunately, it appears that your landlord has decided to initiate eviction proceedings against you. While I do not see any defenses from the information you have provided in your post (a failure to pay rent is grounds to provide a 3 day notice and initiate an unlawful detainer), there may be others available to you. I am going to give you a link to the California Department of Consumer Affairs website regarding these actions as it has a lot of information on how to defend yourself in an action like this and explains the procedure. http://www.dca.ca.gov/publications/landlordbook/evictions.shtml
I hope this is helpful, if you have questions about this or more specific questions regarding the process please let me know I will be more than happy to help. Best regards, Bill.
