Dear Customer ,

Thank You for posting your landlord-tenant question this evening. I'm attorney Bill assisting you with your request. If your mother accepted the late rental check the tenancy has been revived and can only be terminated according to the lease or by giving the appropriate legal notice period to vacate.

Because your boyfriend has been there for over one year you would need to serve him with notice to vacate terminating the tenancy giving him 60 days notice to vacate.

This is the law:

"

) Notwithstanding Section 1946 , a hiring of residential real property for a term not specified by the parties, is deemed to be renewed as stated in Section 1945 , at the end of the term implied by law unless one of the parties gives written notice to the other of his or her intention to terminate the tenancy, as provided in this section.

(b) An owner of a residential dwelling giving notice pursuant to this section shall give notice at least 60 days prior to the proposed date of termination.  A tenant giving notice pursuant to this section shall give notice for a period at least as long as the term of the periodic tenancy prior to the proposed date of termination.

(c) Notwithstanding subdivision (b), an owner of a residential dwelling giving notice pursuant to this section shall give notice at least 30 days prior to the proposed date of termination if any tenant or resident has resided in the dwelling for less than one year.

(d) Notwithstanding subdivision (b), an owner of a residential dwelling giving notice pursuant to this section shall give notice at least 30 days prior to the proposed date of termination if all of the following apply:

(1) The dwelling or unit is alienable separate from the title to any other dwelling unit.

(2) The owner has contracted to sell the dwelling or unit to a bona fide purchaser for value, and has established an escrow with a title insurer or an underwritten title company, as defined in Sections 12340.4 and 12340.5 of the Insurance Code, respectively, a licensed escrow agent, as defined in Sections 17004 and 17200 of the Financial Code , or a licensed real estate broker, as defined in Section 10131 of the Business and Professions Code ."

The above rule is for periodic tenancies/ month to month tenancies.

In case of an agreed notice period longer than this in a lease you would need to abide by that.

Should your boyfriend fail to pay rent he can be served with the three day notice once again and evicted by filing unlawful detainer proceedings in the Superior Ct.

We are here to help so please follow up with me as required.

In return your positive rating is what gives me a credit for my time.

You do this by rating 5*****, 4**** or better.

FIVE STARS or your rating is much appreciated.

Thanks

Attorney Bill

Hello, different expert here.. If he was supposed to be paying rent and he has failed to do so, then you can give him a written 3 day notice to pay rent or vacate. You would want to put the entire amount of rent due on the notice, but not any late fees if applicable.. So if he owes for 2 months, put both months on the notice.

.

Then if he doesn't pay everything due within the 3 days after you give him the notice, on the 5th day after you give him the notice (keep a copy) you can file a formal eviction case in the local Superior Court to get a judgment and a writ that the sheriff will execute to force him to leave..

.

But if he has paid everything that was due on the rent, then you would have to give him a 30 day or a 60 day, depending on whether he has lived there under a year or over a year, and then file to evict through the courts if he doesn't leave.

.

.

thanks
