Probably, but, the landlord should obtain legal advice before giving the required notice and initiating an unlawful detainer action.

There should be a government website where homes are listed. gosection8.com can give you leads otherwise each city will list their available properties. If you google it you should find the city you are looking for.

Good luck,

HI James
The local government in the antioch and pittsburg area is having to deal with reduced property tax revenues. This has been going on for some time, and still continues. Until property values recover, it is going to be difficult for the local government and the school district to cope. So it probably will not be easy for you to find a teaching position in these 2 cities. Pittsburg economically may be doing slightly better than Antioch, cause of the sales tax revenues. You might want to check Brentwood, it may be doing slightly better than Antioch.
Good luck with your job search.

I have no idea which Brentwood the Corte Madera agent thinks has a soft market but the Brentwood in Northern California, next to Antioch CA, is very strong, rentals priced at market rates are rented under a month. I would not purchase in Brentwood in hopes of e-Bart coming any time soon. Antioch also has a strong rental market. As to which one is better there is not a clear winner, each has pros and cons. Brentwood has traditionally had strong appreciation and strong rentals desirability but you will pay more for the house and therefore have a lower rate of return based on rents received. Antioch was hit harder by the foreclosure crisis and therefore has a greater potential for appreciation when the market rebounds. The rental market is strong in Antioch as well and there is no reason to believe that will change in the future especially factoring in the widening of route 4, in progress, and the eventuality of BART. ... more

BTW, I'm not an attorney but I've been a landlord for decades and have gained a little knowledge and experience in this area so I'm just passing along a little friendly information based on my personal experience as a property manager. If indeed you are in a lease/rental situation yourself. You may want to review your L/R agreement to see if there are any clauses regarding sub-letting or visitor length/term parameters you'd be dealing with. If not then you just may want to have your friend sign an agreement that he will leave when asked. Just a thought. ... more
