What state are you located in?
What was the basis for them to argue that you are retaliating by trying to evict them?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
California....they trying to say that I served wrong notice about only three weeks eviction instead of 30days...the letter is not even legal and not even notarize and also this people has no legal paper that they rent from me ..It's just a verbal no papers
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
That's the only one I kind of worry about...It's not soon to give them another notice for 30days
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Please help me..I feel threatened...they like to argue with me...all the time...they are trying to scared me
Expert:  Maverick replied 2 years ago.
Since you have a verbal contract it appears that you are on a month to month lease. So, yes, you can send them another 30 days notice to vacate. The letter does not have to be notarized and since they were not harmed in anyway from the 3 weeks notice you originally gave, there is nothing to worry about. look at section 1946 at the link above as it provides that you only have to give them 30 days notice. You can use the form at the link above. Please remember to assign a feedback rating so JA will compensate me for my time. You are free to ask follow-up questions thereafter at no charge. Please allow up to 24 hours for a follow-up response if I am signed off. If, for some reason, you are not satisfied with the answer, I would appreciate knowing why so that I can try to clear up any misunderstanding that may have taken place and still earn a positive rating from you. If you would rather obtain a refund of your deposit, just let me know and I will inform JA on your behalf. Finally, you may request me in the future by beginning the question with "THIS IS FOR MAVERICK". Thank you for using Just Answer.
