    Default Landlord Liability in an Eviction

    My question involves an eviction in the state of: California
    If a landlord must evict an elderly tenant in a non-rent controlled city in California, and in the process of moving out (or before s/he actually moves out), the tenant dies or suffers a medical ailment, can the landlord be held liable?

    No. Why would the landlord be liable for the tenant's poor health?

    He's no more liable than he would be if the tenant weren't moving out, and died or became ill in the unit. Which is to say, not at all.

    What if the Landlord was in part responsible for stress on the elderly person due to wanting to evict her, this causes a lot of harm physically and mentally, could they be held liable? I think it would be pretty difficult to prove but I think it is a stressful situation at any age, perhaps more for the elderly.
