Customer Question
In CA can I...

In CA can I break the lease if landlord advertised and rented me a 3 bedroom house described as 4 bedrooms

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

It is California

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No I just wrote my landlord he did not accept his deceptive advertisement rather he said I hchose the unit had a showing before signing lease. Weird not count number of bedrooms during showing but that should not allow him to do fraud

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
