Tenant & Landlord Rights

The "California Tenants" booklet is a practical resource for both tenants and landlords. It provides information about rental applications, unlawful discrimination, security deposits, repair responsibilities, rent increases, termination of leases, eviction notices, and includes inventory checklist for use before moving in, and again when moving out. You can get more information by visiting the California Department of Consumer Affairs Web site at www.dca.ca.gov or by calling 800-952-5210. We hope you find this information helpful.
