Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
.
Did you rent the entire ten acres as well as the home under any lease to the tenant?
.
Or did you just rent them the home and any surrounding yard?
.
Or does the lease not specify exactly what the tenant rented?
.
.
thanks

The lease does not specify. I rented a house. This is in California. They had some yard. But did not use the rest of the property.
Real Estate Lawyer: Barrister, Lawyer replied 2 years ago
Ok, if the lease doesn't specify what the tenant rented, but does specify the address of the house, then I would opine that they would have the use of the house and any attached yard, but not the remainder of the ten acres unless the lease specifically states this.
.
With that said, if the remainder of the ten acres wasn't included under the lease, then there is nothing that would prevent you from living on it.

thanks

Thank you. Also, can I verify that once a lease is over it just reverts to a month to month, but you still have to give notice to terminate.
Real Estate Lawyer: Barrister, Lawyer replied 2 years ago
Once a fixed term lease expired, it automatically converts to a month to month tenancy if the landlord and tenant agree to continue the tenancy. If the tenant has lived there over a year, then the landlord has to give them a 60 day written notice to terminate under CA law (CA Civil Code 1946.1) The tenant can terminate with only a 30 day notice though.

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.
