Late payment of rent which means NO PAYMENT OF RENT is number reason for eviction and esp. for a rent controlled building, the number one way to get a tenant out.

If you are late, landlord gives you a 3 day pay/quit. If you do not pay within those three days, the landlord does not have to accept your rent and then can evict you.

My old landlord told me that if a person pays late three times that he can make moves to evict them. I don't think he ever did, but he had the option to do so.

Whatever happens YOU DO NOT WANT AN EVICTION on your credit report. It's better to leave BEFORE eviction proceedings start and let your landlord sue you for the overdue balance.

It's really hard to come back from that or rent in a decent area in most places. Landlords and property managers can overlook bad credit by making you pay extra in security, but they will most definitely frown upon an eviction. It's costly to get a tenant out and takes up to six months in tenant friendly cities like LA and NYC.

My advice is to never let it get to the point where the sheriff comes to put you out... at best... you get a few more weeks and the trade-off is an eviction on your record.

Some owners will compromise and let you go... it costs money to evict and takes time...

Court Records of Unlawful Detainer show up on background checks...

Here's a State of California Link for more information about renting in CA

If they don't pay rent (3 day notice to pay or quit)
Or for any reason they want to get rid of you (30 day notice to quit)

I have found that it is better to try, at least try, to have a good relationship with tennants. Then if all else fails get rid of them.

Sometimes it may be that the owner just wants to sell the property.

I know an eviction can hurt your credit that is why I would try to be nice and ask first, or explain the problem. Most tennants in LA area have to fill out a credit check application before they can get into a rental. Depending of course how easy or hard it is to find rentals. I owned rentals for 25 years in SoCA
