Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I am afraid that if one occupant of a leased residence violates the lease, all of the occupants may be evicted. You do not say what he was arrested for, but under CA law, the landlord can evict a tenant using a 3 day notice for any of the following;
Failed to pay the rent.
Violated any provision of the lease or rental agreement.
Materially damaged the rental property ("committed waste").
Used the rental property for an unlawful purpose.
Substantially interfered with other tenants ("committed a nuisance").
Committed domestic violence or sexual assault against, or stalked another tenant or subtenant on the premises.
Engaged in drug dealing, unlawfully used, cultivated, imported, or manufactured illegal drugs.
Using the building or property to conduct dogfighting or cockfighting.
Unlawful conduct involving weapons or ammunition
So I am afraid that if he was arrested at the property for a criminal offense, this is a violation the landlord can choose to evict over.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
