Wrongful Evictions/Fighting Evictions
San Francisco Wrongful Eviction Attorneys
California law dictates that landlords cannot evict tenants from homes, apartments or commercial spaces without first filing an unlawful detainer lawsuit and obtaining a court order for eviction. Typically, landlords must also provide an eviction notice to tenants detailing why they are being evicted and a timeframe for when the eviction will take place. If a landlord does not follow proper eviction procedures, the tenant may have a claim for wrongful eviction.
