Customer Question
I have a tenant...

I have a tenant who has not paid rent since November. The tenant was given a 3-day notice and a 3-day was sent by certified mail. What is the next step to eviction? The property is located in Inglewood, CA

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?

Inglewood, CA 90301

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

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No I don't think so. I never done this before and I'm trying to it properly and legally. Thank you.

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed California attorney. I would be happy to provide assistance. Please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only.

Answer: After serving the notice, if the tenant has not vacated the premises within the 3-day period, then you must file an unlawful detainer suit against the tenant. There will be a hearing at which the tenant may present evidence to dispute the eviction. However, an eviction for non-payment of rent does not require a reason for the eviction, just failure to pay, and therefore will be granted by the court. Once the court has ruled in your favor, you can serve the tenant with a writ of possession and request the assistance of the sheriff's office to evict the tenant.

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.
