Hi, I recently rented out my home located in Los Angeles. My plans have not panned out and I desperately want to move back into my house, however, they still have 10 months left on the lease!!!
They pay their rent, they don’t cause disturbance, basically they abide by the law so I can’t find a fault, however I really want to move back into my house and have found that renting in an apartment is REALLY not for me and is making me very depressed and miserable among other personal issues. Fortunately the tennants are not so friendly so I don’t feel so guilty about it considering I’m a nice person.
Does anyone know if this is possible, without hiring a pricey RE attorney??? Does anyone know the minimum notice required? Please help me, I’m desperate!! Thanks!
To answer some questions – First of all you can imagine how unhappy I am in my current situation to want to move back after only 2 months, especially when I HATE the hassle of moving. I was pressured into renting it out in the first place. I was kind of curious what it would go for so I listed it, then the next day I took it down after getting bombarded with so many responses, but these people literally would not let go and they pressured me to send them the app, pressured me to send and sign the lease. I could easily have asked for at leat 2K more/month (yes it is a very beautiful house in a highly desired neighborhood) but I had no time for research and was pressured, so I thought I would do them a favor since they wanted it so bad. But in my apartment, the landlord suddenly took away my parking space (wasn’t in the lease so I can’t do anything) I have to walk two blocks for street parking, it is miserable here and I am very unhappy to put it very mildly. I want my house back!!!!!!!!

1. Find a new place for then, almost same as yours
2. Bride them (maybe pay their first month)
3. Get some bogus complaint
4. Sit down and talk to them
It is so time consuming to find a place that I don’t want to deal with that. I don’t want to find a bogus complaint – I’m honest to a fault. I don’t think talking will get me anywhere considering how much they pressured me to let them move in in the first place, which I blame on my soft personality more than their bullying. Trust me if I could get off the hook by offering to pay their first month I would be I doubt in reality that would fly.

“How does breaking their lease because you are not happy with your circumstances that you created, make you the nice person and they are worthy of being told to move because they are not so nice in your opinion. You sound like a self absorbed, only think of yourself kind of person……these types of people are prone to depression.”
I’m not saying they’re “worthy” to be moved because they’re not so nice! I’m just saying that because in general I am a nice person to a fault, pushover type who feels guilty about everything, the only thing that makes this situation any bit easier is that they are at least not so nice. Also, how is it that I’m the self absorbed person when they literally FORCED me to rent it to them after I took down my add and kept saying no. They had one of my neighbors come knocking on my door even to ask for them and wouldn’t leave me alone – I unwillingly gave in and THEY have made ME miserable
Now that they made me miserable by pushing me to give them a lease I to the end did not want (and even before I moved out I was asking around if I could get out of the lease so I have been against it from the beginning – it’s their fault for forcing an innocent person with many of them and their people against me just because I’m all alone and they saw how pushover I was). Anyways, I’m not going to make any lies to do it – they are responsible people and basically I want my house back and CANNOT function in an apartment – I work out of my home and it is way way too noisy so I have to take a lot of time off and can’t be on the phone, I now have no parking, these people pretty much forced me out of my own house and I guess if nobody knows the CA RE laws then I’ll have to seek an attorney. I’ve bent over backwards for them in every way and no, I’m not interested in being in the landlord business, never was.
One last thing to add is that I was so nice they took an extra 6 weeks to move in so in the meantime I was paying for my apartment and mortgage without charging them anything, they didn’t say thank you or give a care about me the moment I signed their lease. All of that aside, the bottom line is that I want to live in my own house and want to find out with the CA laws are with regards to that before I go through the trouble of apartment hopping since this place is not habitable for me.
