   California Business Torts: Commercial Transactions Litigation

18. CONSTRUCTIVE EVICTION

The traditional elements of Constructive Eviction are: (1) the landlord commits or omits an act or acts which (2) render the premises or a substantial portion thereof unfit for the purposes for which they were leased.

Because constructive eviction is not a contract action, punitive damages may be available for wrongful eviction obtained with the use of oppression, fraud, or malice.

The Scarlett Law Group handles commercial transactions, business matters and litigation in these areas: There are at least 23 common law business torts recognized by most states. Indeed, some variations of each claim would necessarily bring the number of business torts much higher. These claims include, but are not limited to, the following types of claims:

  1. Fraud
  2. Conversion
  3. Negligence
  4. Negligent Misrepresentation
  5. Malicious Prosecution
  6. Abuse of Process
