i don't know if similar questions to this have been asked here before or not, but i have a question about renter's rights, and a renter's rights to paid rent money being given back, and where i might find this information. i was a renter, renting a room from a couple who were renting a house from the wife's apartment. due to personal problems, the friendship dissolved, and they told me that "it'd be best for everyone involved if i found a new place to live". from everyone i have talked to, legally, they have no rights to kick me out of the house, because an arguement does not warrant kicking somebody out of their home. my friend, who is currently studying law, also says that since they are kicking me out, and i'm not leaving on 30 days notice, that i am legally entitled to my december's rent back from them, since it is only the 9th. i am demanding my rent back from them, since they are kicking me out of the house. and if they refuse, i will talk to a lawyer and take them to court over it. according to everyone i've talked to, i am within my legal rights, and should win the case, if it came to that. but before talking to a lawyer, i was wondering if anyone knows any place i can go to research this, to educate myself beforehand. this is also in the state of california, since i know that laws can vary from state to state. any help is appreciated. thanks.
