Eviction and Unlawful Detainer Law

What Is An Unlawful Detainer Action?

Under California Civil Code Section 1951.3 an “unlawful detainer” is the court action a landlord must bring in order to evict a tenant. If the landlord wins, the unlawful detainer order will allow the sheriff to forcefully remove the tenant from the residence if the tenant still refuses to leave.
