California Tenant Law

Los Angeles tenant lawyer

If you are a tenant renting a commercial or residential property in the State of California, you have legal rights to protect yourself from unjust and unwarranted landlord claims brought against you.

With over 15 years experience in California tenant law, the Law Offices of Raymond Hovsepian help tenants with the resources required to resolve a dispute with a landlord in a timely and cost effective manner consistent with your tenant rights.

For example, if your landlord is trying to evict you, then he must follow certain procedures consistent with tenants’ rights, such as providing an eviction notice to you outlining the reasons for the eviction.

If your landlord is evicting you without cause you may be entitled to certain reloction costs as dictated by the city in which you live. For example, the City of Los Angeles mandates relocation costs between a few thousand dollars to approximately $18,300.

It is financially smart to retain our services if you are facing an eviction. The eviction process moves very fast and if you do not act even faster you may face a Notice to Vacate from the Sheriff.

Unrepresented tenants often find the eviction process difficult to understand and may not know what is necessary to win an eviction action against them.

With a goal of representing tenants in commercial and residential disputes, the Law Offices of Raymond Hovsepian can help tenants fight major management companies, investors, as well as many “mom and pop” landlords.

Our honest, affordable and successful expertise in tenant law has been sought by tenants living in Los Angeles, Ventura, Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
