Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Can I be served with an eviction notice?
Unfortunately the answer is yes, if you are not under a written fixed term lease, then that means that you are a month to month tenant can either you or the landlord can terminate the tenancy with a proper written notice. Since this is a commercial property, in CA proper notice is a 30 day written notice delivered to the other party specifying the date on which the tenancy will end.
Then if the tenant didn't move out, the landlord would have to pursue a formal unlawful detainer (eviction) action in court, which takes about 3-4 weeks depending on the court schedule, before the landlord could have the sheriff physically remove the tenant and change the locks.
