Owning and managing rental property in California can be complex, and there are many obligations landlords owe their tenants. When a landlord fails in his or her obligations or there is a dispute with a tenant, it can eventually lead to complex litigation. If you own rental property, it is in your interests to know what the expectations are of you and how you can avoid problems.
You may own the property, but that does not necessarily mean you can do whatever you want as long as there is someone renting it. It is smart to know your rights as a landlord, as well as the rights of the people who rent your property. Avoiding common mistakes that many owners and property managers make can help you avoid legal problems and unnecessary costs.
