Threatening residents

Tamara Cross Attorney, San Diego says:

This is part 9 of my blog series about dealing with threatening and violent residents. This post specifically applies to the Manufactured Housing Community and Mobilehome Park Owners.

As you are aware, a resident can be evicted for threatening and aggressive behavior either under violation of a reasonable rule and regulation (798.56(d)) and/or a substantial annoyance eviction (798.56(b)). By indicating in your rules that this type of behavior is prohibited and constitutes a substantial annoyance, and by serving the appropriate notices and obtaining substantial documentation supporting this (written witness statements, restraining orders, police reports etc.), a 60-day notice for termination of tenancy can be a very effective way to protect the employee against an abusive, violent resident.
