California Defenses to Evictions for Tenants
There are many complex legal actions to take when an issue concerning a landlord and tenant arise. Having an attorney present during an unlawful detainer lawsuit is the best option if you wish to find a favorable outcome. You will have rights and options that you must learn about in order to move forward with your claim, and you must do this in a very short amount of time.
If you are a tenant in California looking to defend against a complaint, you may be able to utilize the following facts in your written answer:
- The implied warranty of habitability was violated by the rental unit
- The eviction action was filed by the landlord in retaliation
- The three-day notice requested an amount of rent more than the normal amount
Once you have received a complaint, you will have hours to talk to an attorney and to begin formulating a plan. From here, you can then move forward to challenge the case with or without a jury (not all cases get one).
