How do I evict my tenant in Santa Clarita?
Typically, the eviction process begins with a 3-day notice to remedy the issue or vacate the property. However, in cases where the landlord seeks to evict due to the presence of unauthorized occupants or pets that were brought in as a result of the COVID-19 emergency, and who started living in the unit between March 1, 2020, and January 20, 2023, and continue to reside there after March 31, 2023, the landlord must first serve the residential tenant with a 30-day notice to remedy the situation or vacate the premises before commencing an unlawful detainer action. In situations where the violation is unrelated to unauthorized occupants or pets that emerged during COVID-19, a 3-day notice can typically be used.
No fault evictions in Santa Clarita
Starting on April 1, 2023, landlords in the city of Santa Clarita can issue 60-day notices to end tenancy without a justifiable cause, unless the property is subject to Civil Code 1946.2, which necessitates an acceptable just-cause reason. Please contact our office to arrange a consultation. However, if the tenant availed themselves of COVID-related non-payment protections, they will remain protected from no-fault evictions during their repayment period.
