My daughter was just approved for renters assistance in CA. She is late on Aug and now Sept. her landlord was approved

Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Second opinion] My daughter was just approved for renters assistance in CA. She is late on Aug and now Sept. her landlord was approved to be paid for her but hasn't yet. Her lease expires at the end of Sept and my daughter wants to go month to month until the end of Dec (She was approved through Dec for renters assistance and they will pay the rent to her her landlord directly), her landlord states she can stay through Oct if she pays the Oct rent before 10/5, otherwise she has to move out. He has not submitted her with any paperwork and her lease states that it will roll over to a month to month if a new 1 year lease isn't signed.
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?
Customer: CA
JA: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?
Customer: There was an issue with the fence falling down and the landlord said he wouldn't fix it, so my daughter had to fix it herself and deducted part of the cost from her rent. The landlord said it was the neighbors responsibility to pay for the other half. Although that should be his responsibility to sort out, not hers. Other than that, there isn't anything that I know of and I just asked my daughter. It's more little things on his side that he isn't fixing and she is taking care of
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: The owner wants her out but I think it's because rent in that area is going for about $800 more than what she is paying

Welcome and thank you for using Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I'm the attorney who will be assisting with your legal question. So I can best help, is this a single family home owned by an individual?

Customer
it is

Elizabeth, Expert

He can terminate the tenancy, but he'd have to give her 60 days notice, which would take her beyond October.

Customer
her lease doesn't end until the end of Sept anyway, so if he gives her a 60 day notice would he then still be required to receive the rent payments from rental assistance

Elizabeth, Expert

Correct.

Customer
Can he also increase the rent if it goes from a lease to month to month? I know CA has an order for no rent increases during 2021

Elizabeth, Expert

He's not covered under AB 1482, because it's a single family home. So he can do a rent increase.

Customer
ok thank you
