I am writing on behalf of a good friend of mine, who recently received 60 day notice to vacate (in a text message) from his landlord. Shortly after receiving the notice, I received a voicemail from his landlord, stating the reason for 60 day notice to vacate, was due to my friend's age/disability. The landlord claims that he is afraid that my friend will injure himself on the property due to his age/disability. I am trying to determine what recourse my friend has handling this issue.
- We currently reside in California
- My friend's lease expired and he is currently on a month-to-month agreement
- My friend is 68 years old and is handicapped from a leg injury he received when he was young
- Both the voicemail and text confirms the reason provided was due to age/disability
