Customer Question
Hello - I moved...

Hello - I moved into a house for rent on 10/1/2017 and signed a one year lease. Now the owners themselves have moved into the home for the past 2 months and have began rearranging my belongings. Enterting my private bedroom, moving my things, etc. They have unofficially asked me to move because the want to sell the property, I have only been here 4 months. They have also listed the property for sale and have been having open house for the past 2 months.

No, I haven't done anything yet.

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the house located?

In San Pedro, CA - Los Angeles County

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

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.
