California Eviction Forms

Why Do You Need a California Eviction Form?

California Eviction Forms are critical in the eviction process because Eviction Laws in California requires all persons residing in the property in question to be served with a proper Notice of Eviction. If preparation or service of the Notice / Eviction Form is done incorrectly or not at all and the tenant raises it as a defense, the Court will dismiss the Landlord's complaint due to a procedural defect and the tenant will prevail at Court.
