  • Evicted

    I just recieved an eviction notice from my landlord. No biggie... just move.

    However there are no availible homes to rent in my fire district.

    Has anybody heard of any obscure laws that might be on the books in California that may help to protect a volunteer firefighter and the community he serves in a situation such as this???

    I hate to have to quit the department. We are short handed as it is

          Sounds like your next move is to the firehouse....although I did hear that Jake the Hose Monkey is looking for a roomie.

            Why not just ask your FD if you can still be a member while you temporarily live outside of the district? Just explain the situation to them, tell them you are looking for something in the district, but until them you have to move out of the district. And for now on, pay your rent!!!

              #1 Why did you get evicted?
              never heard of a law protecting anyone from eviction.

              #2 get a job
              #3pay the rent....

              all this equals...no eviction...which equals no problem.

              Some departments let people live in...but I am opposed to bums living in....so they can "save money" How can you save money with no job???????

                I have a full time job and I have payed the rent every month on time for over eight years now and we are not bums.

                We are being evicted because the landlord now wishes his daughter to live in the house.

                In most parts of California I am learning, that your familiy can be evicted for no cause other than the landlords whim

                  It's fairly normal for landlords to sell buildings out from under tenants. Especially with single family homes. If the landlord decides to sell an "investment property", he puts it on the market just like a private owner/occupant.

                  So, if the buyer wants to move in...

                  Your only protection is a "notification clause" in your lease, 60 days is typical. If you don't have one, oh well.

                  I'm sure the landlord is within his rights, you just got caught on the short end of things.

                  Ask your dept. for a variance while you look for something in district.
