California tenants have significant rights under state and local laws, particularly those in rent-controlled cities. Your landlord won't tell you about your rights as a tenant. It's up to you to know what's legal and not in a lease, under what circumstances you may legally break a lease or withhold rent; what are reasonable security deposit deductions; what defenses you might have to stop an eviction; and other rights.
