So Cal Tenants Resource strives to provide the Southern California tenant with as much value as possible, in a cost effective manner.  As a community service, So Cal Tenants Resource provides FREE TENANT FORMS to So Cal Tenants who find the need to contact their Landlord in writing.  While the Free Tenant Forms are intended to resolve disputes in an attempt to avoid litigation, So Cal Tenants Resource is ready to follow up by filing lawsuits against Landlords who fail to comply, or by assisting with the preparation of a small claims lawsuit when and where appropriate.
