In order to evict a tenant in California, a Landlord must follow the unlawful detainer process in the Civil Code. This can be time consuming and expensive for the landlord since tenants can essentially live rent free in the property during this time. I had the opportunity to be a radio show guest on ESPN 1700 AM Real Talk San Diego with host Lynette Braun on October 5, 2015, and was able to discuss the unlawful detainer process and answer questions. The segment from the podcast is listed below, and I hope it will help you gain a basic understanding of what an eviction entails from a landlord’s standpoint. For any eviction questions or assistance with the unlawful detainer process, please contact the Law Office of Ashley M. Peterson and I would be happy to speak with you about your case.
