I am being unfairly evicted from my apartment .. Which documents do you need to see or do you want an explanation regarding the eviction?

An explanation please
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I am being wrongfully evicted from my apartment because the manager got mad at me for asking to have things repaired in the apartment .. I have requested these repairs at least 6 times & she doesn't want to be bothered so she put an eviction notice on my door. I have never broken any of the rules of the complex. What can I do about this?

This is the third time in 3 days that I have submitted my question & I never get an answer .. however .. You have charged my bank account $41.00 .. What is going on here?
Expert:  RealEstateAnswer replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for the reply. The landlord is not allow to retaliate against you. A legal duty/obligation that the landlord has, is making the necessary repairs on the rental. If you requested these and they have failed to do so in a reasonable time, then they would be in breach of the rental agreement. Now, you shared that you made the request 6 times and if the landlord is retaliating against you for doing this and wants you out of the rental so that they do not have to make them, then you could have a legal defense. If you are in compliance with the rental agreement, you need to show the Judge the written requests you made, along with the actual damage and show that the landlord has not taken any action and you are not in breach of the lease and their decision to evict is based solely on not wanting to make the repairs and wanting you out.

I was told by another attorney that in California, a landlord can evict with no reason at all .. Is this true?
Expert:  RealEstateAnswer replied 2 years ago.
If you are on a month to month lease, a landlord can end it with the proper written notice, for no reason at all. However, if a tenant has a valid lease and/or is in compliance with their monthly lease, then the landlord does need to have a legal basis to terminate it early.
