Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney whowill try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone whocan. There may be a slight delay in myresponses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
When you signed the lease, did it specify the use of the parking lot came with the building?
Or was the lease silent about the parking lot?
Does your lease just specify a particular address like*****
Ok, then they can ding you for a lease violation, but if there is no mention of any type of fine, then they can't just arbitrarily come up with a number for that. The lease controls and if it doesn't specify a fine, he can't charge one...period..
So he can give you a 3 day notice to correct any violation and if it happens again, he can evict. But that is it. I don't think that he could give you a 3 day unconditional notice to vacate under CA Civil Code 1161(4) because storing the things outside for such a brief time probably wouldnt' be considered a "nuisance" under the law.
Honestly, that is probably your best course of action, even though I think you could fight it. But sometimes you can win the battle and lose the war...
And you are very welcome. Happy to help.
As an aside, in addition to being an attorney, I have also been a landlord for over 26 years...
