With the cost of housing and commercial property rentals rising across the state, things don’t always go as planned and tenants or borrowers occasionally move out of a property without notice. This is known as lease abandonment, which happens to be the topic of discussion for this post. Today, we’ll go over what lease abandonment entails and touch upon the potential consequences that could arise from a tenant abandoning a lease.
In California, civil and criminal liability laws stipulate that individuals are expected to behave in ways which don’t jeopardize the safety of others or endangers them in any way. This expected reasonable duty of care stretches across nearly all situations and contexts: drivers must be careful and attentive when operating a vehicle, business owners must take precautions to ensure the safety of their employees and customers, and homeowners must do their due diligence in ensuring that their premises are safe and free of hazards.
When a property owner falls behind or is unable to make his/her mortgage payments on a property, the lender can choose to move forward with a foreclosure. In simple terms, this is the legal process that lenders follow when they want to reclaim a property or attempt to recoup their losses.
The foreclosure process can be lengthy and complicated. To help homeowners and other property owners navigate these stressful situations, we’re offering a quick and simplified overview of how the foreclosure process works in California.
