    Default Rights if tenant moves out before 30 day notice is concluded

    I recently served my brother with a 30 day notice to move out of my mothers house (she's deceased). He moved his stuff out of the house except a 2 broken dressers (empty) and he's got a non-working car in the driveway. He hasn't lived or occupied the house since 1 day after notice was given. Can I change the locks on the house or am I required to wait until he moves his car? The house is located in California. He hasn't paid any rent for the month and is not on the park lease.

    How long has it been since you served the notice? Is there any chance that he will formally surrender the premises to you and return the keys?

    No he will not return the keys, he keeps dropping by saying he's picking up mail that isn't there. He originally agreed on Feb. 28th to move out by March 31, then he decided he wanted to be "officially served paperwork" so I served him on April 1.
