Strike a blow for Landlords

Evict or stay? The California Supreme Court cleared up the confusion between two statutes, and ruled in favor of allowing property owners to evict tenants. Under the law, tenants can claim that their landlords are trying to evict them in retaliation for complaining about the property.

Another competing law allows landlords to remove property from the marketplace for any reason whatsoever. This conundrum often created havoc for judges to resolve these competing claims when faced with an eviction case.

The Court ruled that the landlord-favorable law trumps the tenant-favorable law. For the full opinion, see Drouet v. Sup. Ct. So our State Supreme Court says tenants beware - instead of complaining about the property, vote with your feet. Move out!
