California Eviction Process

To start the eviction process, landlords must provide written notice to their tenants, stating the reason for eviction if applicable. If the issue isn't resolved or the tenant doesn't leave, the landlord must go to court to obtain an eviction order.

In California, eviction proceedings typically take 30 to 45 days, although the duration may extend beyond this timeframe. The countdown starts when the eviction court documents are served on the tenant and lasts until the deadline for their departure.
