What is an Unlawful Detainer?
An unlawful detainer dispute (also known as eviction) involves two parties: the tenant facing eviction and the landlord. Most often, failure to pay rent or failure to comply with the terms and conditions of a lease gives rise to the filing of an unlawful detainer action. The law firm of Stone and Sallus has successfully represented both landlords and tenants in such cases and are prepared to consult with you about your rights.
Cases Our Unlawful Detainer Lawyers Handle
When preparing for an unlawful detainer dispute, it is important to speak with an attorney well-versed in real estate litigation to understand your rights and give insight to the best solutions.

With the representation of Stone and Sallus in your unlawful detainer cases, we will assist you in the planning of notices and legal documentation.
Unlawful detainer cases we handle most often involve:
Tenants Facing Eviction
The eviction process formally and legally commences when a landlord serves a Notice to Quit to the tenant. A 3, 30, 60 or 90-day notice will be served. Each notice has unique legal requirements and it is recommended that you schedule a consultation with the lawyers at Stone and Salas immediately as a Summons and Complaint sounding in Unlawful Detainer will follow soon thereafter.
The time to file a response is strict and limited. If you do not file a written response within the prescribed time period, you will be held in default. This may lead to an expedited eviction, wherein the authorities will forcibly remove you from the property.
The benefit of having experienced attorneys represent you in these proceedings is that they can slow the process and, in some cases, have the entire proceeding dismissed. The attorneys at Stone and Sallus are skilled in drafting responses that maximize your rights as a tenant and if needed afford you the most time possible under the law to remain on the property.
The attorneys at Stone and Sallus are seasoned representatives of homeowners in post-foreclosure eviction defense matters. If you have lost your home at a sheriff sale in that your time to act is strict and limited.
Similar to unlawful detainer cases where tenants face eviction from the landlord, homeowners who lose their property at a sheriff sale may be able to maximize the amount of time you can remain in your home with the right representation.
Tenants in Foreclosed Properties
If you are a tenant in a property that is being foreclosed upon, you have a number of rights and solutions available to you under the law. A full listing of those rights can be found in the California Homeowner Bill of Rights (HBOR). The lease that a tenant signs is often covered under HBOR. You should always keep a copy of any lease you sign with your landlord and make sure that you bring it with you at the time of your initial consultation with the attorneys at Stone and Sallus.
