Security Deposits

Basic Rules on California Security Deposits 
Note: Some cities may have more laws.
The landlord can use the security deposit to pay for the landlord’s expenses if you fail to perform some duty as a tenant (that is, if you default on a tenant obligation). For example, a landlord can use your security deposit if you default by not paying all of your rent before you move out, by damaging the rental unit
beyond normal wear and tear, or by leaving the unit less clean than when you moved in. The legal definition of "security deposit" sums all of this up by stating that a security deposit is a charge imposed by the landlord to secure the landlord against future tenant defaults.

If the tenant doesn't voluntarily move out after the landlord has properly given the required notice to the tenant, the landlord can evict the tenant.

In order to evict the tenant, the landlord must file an unlawful detainer lawsuit in superior court.
