California: Lease Says I Loose Security Deposit if I Break Lease for Any Reason

My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: California SF Bay Area I just noticed that my lease states that the landlord can keep my security deposit if I break the lease early. This is in addition to any other damages for lost rent. Basically if I break the lease he keeps it even if I find him another qualified tenant. Is that legal in California? I live on the SF peninsula. Does California law override his edits on the lease?

Breaking a Lease: Tenant Wants to Break Lease 3 Months into 12 Month Lease

My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: MI In the past, we have never agreed to let a tenant out of a lease for a fee. In my experience, if they are set on leaving, they leave no matter what and do not have the funds to pay a fee and the cost to move. However, a tenant contacted us and asked if we would agree to let her break her lease for a fee. January is month 3 of a 12 month lease. We have nothing in our lease that allows a tenant to break the lease but with consent of bot...

Evicted for Having Guest Overnight

My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of California. I was recently evicted from a room I was renting for having an unauthorized guest overnight.

Can a Lanlord Charge Us for a New Stove for Cosmetic Wear and Tear

I leased a house in San Dimas for 1 year. Once we were moved out I hired professional cleaners to clean the house.
