Tenant May Be Evicted Due To Failure to Obtain Renters Insurance

On October 1, 2015, the Appellate Division of the Superior Court of California held that a landlord may evict a tenant for failing to obtain renters insurance required by the lease, regardless of whether the breach was material, where the lease provides that “any failure of compliance or performance by Renter shall allow Owner to forfeit this agreement and terminate Renter’s right to possession”. (See, Boston, LLC v. Juarez, 2015 WL 5771040)
