He has been living there for 5 years with no lease (month to month), paying $1000/month ($750/mo UNDER market value) with no rent increase in 5 years. It's a converted garage.

Ok, the relocation money is due even if the unit is illegal, under the ruling of Salazar v. Maradeaga (1992) 10 Cal.App.4th Supp. 1..The amount of the relocation money would depend on their classification and if you visit this link and scroll down the page about 3/4 the way it will set out the calculations based on the age of the tenant, any disability, their income , and how long they have lived there:.Relocation calculator..thanksBarrister
