Do I have any protection from eviction in California? I am a widow, my husband died a month ago and I was not put on the rental agreement for our apartment. I am not working because I am physically not able and under a doctors care. We have never been late on rent and never behind. I offered them six months rent in advance and they make up every excuse for me to get out in 60 days. There was an incident with an ex wife who is angry and caused problems with rental company involving my name. I feel safe in our apartment because of the location.
