So I have some squatters in my home that are three months past due on their rent and refuse to leave until the sheriffs take them out. In California you have to serve tenants that have been living in the dwelling for more than a year with a 60 day notice to vacate if you want them to leave.
The laws in California will provide these particular squatters what will be five rent free months before being compelled to leave; obviously the laws in this state are squatter friendly.
I was not aware that squatters were such an important segment of our society that they are awarded such favorable protections under the law.
The complete defiance of my squatters reminds me of the dwelling situation of the Los Angeles Clippers who faced the Lakers last night at Staples center.
While it is the AEG group that owns the Staples Center, for all intents and purposes, Staples Center, and for that matter Los Angeles, is the sole property of the Lakers. The Clippers, like my squatters, are merely at will tenants in the Purple and Gold’s house.
Certainly, multi-millionaire and Clippers owner Donald T. Sterling is able to keep up with the payments of his lease seeing as he runs the Clippers more like a for-profit business than anything that resembles an NBA franchise in pursuit of winning championships. However, there are things the Clippers and their management have done or allowed to go on during their tenure in Staples that most certainly are a breach of their agreement; or at least they should be.
