Paying but PITA (by Kass [CA]) Posted on: Jun 20, 2022 8:38 PM
Message:

I completed 1031 in December 2021 for duplex in Stockton, CA. The tenants I took over re-signed M2M lease in January. I want to get rid of one of the tenants even though they pay on time, mainly because they think they can do whatever they want because they pay rent. I've emailed them reminders regarding HOA rules, no trash/debris left in plain sight and prohibited vehicle storage. When they didn't remedy the situation, I sent a copy of the violation and attached HOA rules in the mail. The next letter will be non-renewal. In CA/ San Joaquin Co, I don't have to give "cause" if on M2M lease. Anyone familiar with San Joaquin county no cause rule? If no cause for M2M is correct, I also want to do it before August since they will have lived there for 1 year. Or do I have til December. Other reasons include disrespectful to other tenant as well as me and most important they can't abide by safety rules I set. What would you do? --107.132.xxx.xxx

If I were you, I would go to www dot evict123 dot com and ask this question for free on the Dennis Block Eviction Lawyer blog for free. What seems logical and fair does not apply in CA for LLs. Be careful and run it by an eviction lawyer first. --201.140.xxx.xx

We are having a similar situation, except a year lease, not MTM. Still pondering...

I feel your pain. I hear it all the time from tenants that think all they have to do is pay on time.......No, you are expected to pay on time. That is the minimum. They feel that I should never raise their rent because they pay on time. I have to recall when we were tenants and it is interesting to compare being a landlord and a tenant myself. I can see how those thoughts build up. The Landlord has to establish command early and reiterate that it is just business. --199.188.xxx.xx

Step one....deem if the tenant you inherited are trainable. If they are, try everything in your power to Re-Train them

If I am evicting someone, it is because of MY FAILURE along with the tenants. I treat it as a teaching moment. I gather data on what it is TRULY costing me --24.101.xxx.xxx

We have given notice to several-just because we were done with the BS. They paid, with late fees, but we had enough. --73.230.xxx.xx

California, if you want them out, you will want to give notice before they have been there for an entire year. That will be a year of tenancy not a year of your ownership.

Other than that, CA law changes so fast, you can't rely on the answers from those of us who don't live in California. Also, CA law varies from city to city, which makes it more difficult to know what law applies to your house. --76.178.xxx.xxx

I have done a lot of evictions, but never for anything other than payment of rent issues. I believe most pitas are trainable. Raise the rent every time they act out, and make sure they know why the rent went up. Either they will learn or leave. If they stop paying, then evicting for non-payment is a lot easier than evicting for other lease violations, at least around here.

If they voluntarily leave due to the rent increases, then you might avoid the onerous CA eviction laws. --107.141.xx.xxx

increase the rent of PITAs to compensate yourself for the hassle. If they move out, you still win --50.4.xxx.x

Over 20 years of being a landlord and I can honestly say I have never come across this (PITA) until now. Thank goodness for this forum and thank you for everyone's valuable inputs.

evict123 hold time is horrendous and still haven't been able to get through.

Rent increase--definitely. 10% max per San Joaquin county

Trainable?- I'm always willing to give people the benefit of the doubt but I'm highly doubtful for the tenant in question
