1. Canabus is now legal in cal.
2. Unless you have a no smoking clause in your lease that is no cause.
3. Certain areas and certain classes of buildings in LA have rent control or stabilization. Yours might be one of them.
3. Sounds like your tenant might be talking about """relocation assistance""", which might be valid in some of those jurisdictions........or is the two months rent the return of the tenants security deposit ?
4. It also abounds like your first sixty day notice was not in a valid form

Is the tenant willing to pay the rent or not ?

Not to get preachy on you,...but everyone in every kind of business has customers they might not like or get along with. Business is about the money. It's about keeping it simple, clear and uniformly applied and enforced. Keep it arms length and professional.

True cannabis is legal now but the lease has a no smoking clause that the tenant continues to violate. My building is not rent controlled. And the 2 months of rent the tenant is asking for is unrelated to her security deposit she is essentially demanding that if I want her to move out, I'm going to have to pay her to move out - this is not relocation assistance she is asking for, this is someone who is upset that they have to move and now is refusing to pay rent.

My original 60 days notice was done as a courtesy. When she refused to move out, I then submitted an official notice with all the proper legal language. It was only after I submitted that official 60 day notice that she refused to pay her rent.

So in effect my case is about the money and not the other issues.
