Domestic violence victims receive some antidiscirimination and eviction protection. Landlords can usually evict a tenant for any reason including noise complaints, fighting, or calls to the police. However, the law prohibits landlords from evicting a victim of domestic abuse, sexual abuse, human trafficking, stalking, or elder/dependent abuse. The law may only protect you if you have a restraining order or a police report and do not live with the abuser. The victim may still be evicted if they allow the person named in the police report or restraining order to visit the property; if a landlord tries to evict the victim for this reason they must give the tenant three days to correct the problem. Victims should contact a domestic violence agency to go over their options.
