    Default State Taking Over Property and Increasing the Rent

    My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: California

    Hello All,

    Here is my situation:
    I have been renting a house for over 7 years now and about 2 years ago the owner of the property was no longer fit to control thier properties/estate. The state of California took over the property and gave control of to a property managment company. The owners estate is in the court system to determine what will happen with it.

    I mostly had verbal agreements with the original owner - our terms were - as long as I took care of the house, yard work and minor repairs, she would not touch the rent unless I moved out. I kept up my end and sent her rent regularly and kept my end of the repairs. ALL WAS GREAT!

    Since the property managment took over, they gave us a renewable max lease of 1 year, they did minor repairs and they raise the rent annually. I have talked to them on several occations regarding my original agreements with the owner and they don't care about it unless I had it in writing from the original owner. I just want things back to original and don't want the rent increases.

    My questions:

    What can I do to keep my terms as I had with original owner?
    What happens when the owners passes? Does the home get sold? Do they keep it and pass the money on to the estate?
    Can I buy this property now?

    I appreciate any help on this. Thank you

    Default Re: State Taking Over Property, What Rights Do I Have Now Rent Keeps Going Up

    and they don't care about it unless I had it in writing from the original owner.
    So, how do you go about proving your claim? If the owner is not mentally fit to maintain control over the property, she is not going to be able to testify to what your agreement is.

    What can I do to keep my terms as I had with original owner?
    show them your lease that proves your claims. If you cannot do that, you cannot do what you asked.

    What happens when the owners passes?
    they usually get buried.

    Does the home get sold?
    not enough info to determine

    Do they keep it and pass the money on to the estate?
    it all depends on whether there are any heirs or not.

    Can I buy this property now?
    Not enough info to determine but you can probably offer to buy it. Whether it can be sold or not cannot be determined by the info provided.
