Extended Stay Rental Agreement

However, these motel owners are not seeking to extend the corresponding legal rights to these long-term residents. In general, in California, a person who lives in a residence for at least 30 days in a row becomes a “tenant” recognized by law under California law. In order to circumvent California owner-tenant law and prohibit motel guests from atessing legal “tenant” status, motel operators will force residents to “leave” before the 30-day expiration and/or “register” – and then allow residents to return directly to their unit. This illegal trial has been conducted for months and years. The motel operator will take the position that the guest is a “temporary resident” under the law, so for whatever reason the guest can be immediately removed from the unit – even if the guest has lived in the unit for years, but for temporary extracts every 30 days. The illegal practice is so widespread that it has its own nickname – the “28-day shuffle”. .

Species on the Move

An International Conference Series

The conference brings together scientists and natural resource managers working in the disciplines of global change, biogeography and evolution, and relevant in contexts of natural resource management, biodiversity management and conservation, and theoretical ecology.


Species responses to climate change is a rapidly evolving research field, however, much of our progress is being made in independent research areas: e.g. understanding the process vs responding to the implications, terrestrial vs marine ecosystems, global meta-analyses vs in depth species-specific approaches. This interdisciplinary conference develops connections between these parallel streams, and across temporal and spatial scales.
