Re: Ending a Life Estate in Calif and Eviction
they have a right to repair the damage and not be subject to the termination of the life estate.
before you can evict them, you would have to go to court and have the life estate terminated for cause. Damaging a building in itself is not cause. Failure to repair it or especially a failure to repair a situation that causes more damage would be cause for terminating the life estate tenancy. Only after you had the life estate terminated could you evict the tenant.
Once grounds have been established, can I evict them? How?
