A Guide for Landlords on How to Evict a Tenant in California

Evicting a tenant, or forcing a renter to move out of a dwelling that you own, under California law is a time-consuming, multi-step process. The only way to legally evict a tenant is by filing a lawsuit. As a landlord, you have the right to remove tenants who violate their lease agreements. Landlords often want to complete the eviction process quickly to avoid losing rent money and prevent other tenants from moving out due to dissatisfaction with living conditions.

California calls eviction lawsuits unlawful detainer actions, and you should expect the entire process to take about one month. The landlord is the "plaintiff," and the tenant is the &quot

Representations and Warranties

What are Representations and Warranties?

Representations and warranties in business contracts provide facts (representations) and security against loss (warranties) if the statements made are not true. Representations and warranties may also be shortened to "represents and warrants" in a contract.

If the representation in the contract is found to be false, it is called "inaccurate," while a false warranty is considered breached. Representations always refer to past information, as it is impossible for a company or individual to present future information as factual.

Every contract between two parties includes representations and warranties. For example, if you decide to go to an auto dealership to buy a car, you would enter this transaction with several representations, such as:

Exclusivity Clause

  • 8 min read

What is an Exclusivity Clause?

An exclusivity clause is part of a bigger legal document that restricts the signer from buying, selling, or promoting any goods or services from any person or company other than the issuing company associated with the contract. In other words, the company or individual works exclusively with the issuer of the contract. Many company owners who are excited and eager to get started in business may overlook the clause. But violating an exclusivity clause can come with stiff penalties and fines. It is also very difficult to break this clause of a contract without being held responsible for the penalties listed.

A violation of an exclusivity clause may result in a cancellation of the contract, leaving the signer responsible for any goods or services purchased. But this scenario is likely the best case, since the contract issuer can take more extreme legal action. In some cases, violators of exclusivity agreements have been restricted fr
