Call the rent stabilization department or housing department in your area and make a complaint. They must go through the proper channels to evict a tenant, regardless of the reason.
They have to give you notice to vacate, depending upon the situation, it could be 3 days, 30, 60 or 90 days.
Did they do that?
There are laws that govern tenant and landlord relations. You can see them online at http://:www.dca.ca.gov. Look for Landlord and tenant laws. It pays to know your rights when treated unfairly. Many of our laws protect the tenant in the State of California.
Have you been served a three day notice to pay or quit? Have you been to court with your landlord? Why would he tell you to be out in five days? Have you been served legal papers?
Google landlord tenant law in Los Angeles and consult an attorney.
