My question involves an evictionThis situation is in Los Angeles California.
Basically an apartment complex located in Los Angeles has a subtenant who never signed an contracts with the complex. He pays rent to the legal tenant and they have some sort of verbal agreement. The legal tenant did sign a contract and part of the contract stated that any other person cannot stay with them for more than 14 days or else they have to sign a contract and pay directly to the apartment in which the illegal subtenant never did.
Apparently this illegal subtenant has been a menance to the apartment tenants as well as the apartment manager. He has been harassing everyone verbally throughout the years. No one has taken legal action or filed any official complaints about him yet (I am guessing some of the tenants are illegal immigrants which is why they are afraid to pursue anything). They have served him an eviction notice but he won't move out and is actually trying to sue the apartment. In addition, after they tried to evict him, he started reporting trivial things to the housing authorities (peeling paint, broken heater) rather than directly telling the apartment manager.
This situation regarding this subtenant has barely risen because the ownership of the complex recently changed (about a year or two ago).
Basically, is there any way we can get him out without evicting the legal tenant as well? Also, can he actually sue the apartment for trying to kick him out or for anything at all?
Thank you in advance for any replies. in the state of:
