CALIFORNIA TENANT HANDBOOK
CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF CONSUMER AFFAIRS
has waded through a tangle of state regulations to produce a comprehensive and readable rental guide that's equally useful to tenants and landlords.
Department of Consumer Affairs

Helpful tenant information based on California law.
Information on evictions, leases, agreements, repairs,
rents, inspections, security deposits, evictions, mediation, courts, and more.
The guide is logically divided into more than a dozen Web pages, making the information easy to digest and even easier to print for later reading.

The encyclopedia's Landlords & Tenants section has dozens of useful articles.
Nolo's Web guide is based on general legal principles that apply to all 50 states. Several articles and links offer state-specific information, but look elsewhere if you want state and local statutes.
