My question involves an eviction in the state of: CA
I am renting a property through a management company for over a year so our lease has gone to month to month. We started reciving letters of the property owner defaulting on the mortgage, short sale info, ect. I looked up our rental house on a real estate website and saw that the owner has not paid the mortgage to the tune of $12,000+. We received an email from our property management company saying that the owner was going to be short selling the home and attached to the email was a 60 day notice to vacate. I did not respond to this email. About a week later I received a cert letter notice in my mail box, saying that i had a letter at the post office, which i am assuming is from the property management company of the notice to vacate. I work during the day time so am not able to receive the letter at home or stop by the post office. Rent has been paid on time for the entire length of renting and have been a good tenant.
Can i wait for the property management to hand me the letter or tack it to my door? Or was the cert letter that they attempted to send, which i did not receive enough on their part to start the vacating process? Do i have to have the notice to vacate for it to start taking effect? Is 60 days the correct amount of time I should be given to vacate?
Also, during this time am I still responsible for paying rent to the property management company even if the owner is not paying his mortgage? Should i be giving money to the bank instead?
Sorry, a lot of questions. I just really like the place where I am and would not like to move, but understand if I have to. The process for finding a new place is just such a hassle.
