Customer Question
Is it legal to...

Is it legal to rent out a main house and a guest house to separate tenants?

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

In the state of California

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?

Is the person a real estate lawyer? Is there a charge for this Q/A?

Lawyer's Assistant: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Lawyer. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.

What do you mean by "the rest?

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.
