tenant rights lawyers
Tenants have rights in California but there are laws and rules that govern the relationship between a tenant and a landlord, including how they should communicate before taking legal action. Experienced lawyers also know there are civil legal procedures that have to be followed when taking any form of legal action. However, Lawyers from LibertyBell Law Group won’t hesitate to go to court in a lawsuit if they see that your tenant rights were violated and it is in your best interest to get the justice you deserve and compensation for any damages.


Tenants have these rights and more:

  • Knowing the name, telephone number and address of the property manager, whether it is the owner or a person authorized to received legal notices for the owner. It must be either posted in the rental unit, property or building or in the lease itself
  • Some repairs, in California, are required to be fixed by the landlord
  • A landlord may not discriminate against you by asking you orally or in writing about your ethnicity, color, religion, sex, age, medical condition, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, immigration or citizenship status, nationality, or whether you have persons living with you under the age of 18. A landlord may ask you about your source of income, and how many people will be living with you
  • When applying for a rental unit, if the landlord charges you an application screening fee and obtains your credit report, you have the right to request a copy of your credit report
  • If a landlord decides to change the terms of the lease or rental agreement, the landlord must give the tenant advanced written notice, at minimum, the same number of days between when rent is due. This does not apply to month-to-month. Laws for month-to-month rental agreements are different. There are also special rules that apply to other types of rental agreements. It is best to speak to a civil lawyer in California to see which rules apply to your individual circumstances

Speak to a California civil attorney to find out how the local, state, and federal laws apply to your particular rental agreement or lease. Whether it’s a written or oral lease agreement, as a tenant, you have rights.
