Common lease violations that tenants make

On Behalf of | Feb 5, 2020 | Real Estate Litigation

According to Housing Community Investment Department, nearly 60% of Los Angeles residents live in rentals. Leasing a property to a tenant comes with rules and regulations. As far as tenants have their rights, landlords have the right to evict them if they cannot adhere to the lease agreement. 

However, a landlord needs a good reason for terminating the lease. They must give the tenant a notice of 30 days to vacate. Here are some lease violations that call for a legal eviction. 

Contravening pet rules 

Some landlords have regulations regarding whether the tenant can bring in pets and which types of pets they may keep. Some tenants ignore the “no pet allowed” notice. If this happens, the landlord should send a lease violation timeline, which requires the tenant to remove the pet. If they do not comply, the landlord has the right to evict them. 

Decorations that cause damages 

The Standard Rental Agreement states that the tenant should not damage the house but leave it as they found it. It means the tenants are limited in the decorations to avoid unnecessary damages. If a tenant damages the house by adding unnecessary decors, the landlord has the right to issue an eviction notice. 

Extended or unapproved guests 

Some tenancy agreements do not allow tenants to bring in other occupants except for the ones listed in the contract. They should inform the house manager if they have a guest that wishes to transform into a permanent resident. Failure to do this is a lease agreement violation, and the landlord has the right to evict the tenant. 

A strong leaser agreement is a foundation of the landlord-tenant relationship. It is the wish of all landlords to have their tenants around until the lease period elapses.
