Yes, it is forbidden. Moreover, it is a significant burden. What if a tenant is wounded while on your property? You could be sued by them. A landlord will appear extremely remorseful if they rent out an illegal building.

Before allowing a tenant onto your property, kindly abide by the rules and regulations. If you ever decide to evict this person, they may complain that you are illegitimately renting out a shed to the police. Not worth the effort.


“According to California law, there is currently no maximum limit for rent increases. As of January 1, 2001, the landlord must give the tenant at least 30 days advance notice if the rent increase is 10 percent or less of the rent charged at any time during the 12 months before the rent increase takes effect. .”

“When your lease is up, yes.  Otherwise, no.  However, if you want to use the shed, then expect to pay an additional amount for the use of the shed.  That would be separate from the “rent” that you have been paying..”

“I think that depends if you were to give your landlord a chance to renew it after the term ends, or if your lease can get renewed without notice after the term ends. If your lease can get renewed without notice then I think you should be able to keep paying the same amount of rent. I think tenants normally get their lease renewed, so this would give their landlord a chance to increase their rent.FYI…..The shed doesn’t have anything to do with your rent..”
