Question: When I lost my job recently I realized I couldn't continue to pay the rent on my apartment. I didn't want to risk eviction or damages for breaking my lease, so I rented one of my bedrooms to a former co-worker. I knew at the time that my lease prohibited subletting without the owner's permission, but I was desperate. This guy stayed a couple of months and then moved out without any warning and without paying the last month's rent. I wrote to him demanding the money he owed me, but he replied that I couldn't collect rent from him because it would have been a violation of my lease.

Fleur de Lys, the Westside mansion that recently sold for a Southern California record-breaking price of $102 million, is now available for lease for $400,000 a month to long-term tenants. The timing is good for the new, and as yet unidentified, owner. Another mega estate, historic Beverly House in Beverly Hills, reentered the for-sale market at $135 million and also is available to let at $600,000 a month -- making Fleur de Lys look like a relative bargain. Fleur de Lys claims roughly 50,000 square feet of living space on five acres.

Just what is that Google mystery barge? A floating data center? A Google Glass showroom? A party boat?  One of the things that seems to have thrown off the sleuths trying to deduce its purpose: They're looking at the wrong lease.  A week ago, CNET broke the story of the Google mystery barge, in part by using a bunch of clues based on the current leaseholder for Hangar 3 on Treasure Island: a Delaware company called By and Large....

A state program leasing wildlife protection areas to farmers failed to properly spend and report at least $1.7 million in rental income as part of the normal budget process last year, according to an internal state investigation announced Thursday. The irregularities in the program run by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife follow a string of similar controversies at agencies including the Recreation and Parks Department and California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection where money was stashed in off-budget accounts.

Question: I own two houses on the same street. I live in one and rent out the other. The tenants in the rental house have seven months left on their lease. I would like to move my wife's mother into the rental house so she can move out of my house. Will I be able to do that? Answer: A lease is an agreement that is binding on all parties to it, tenant and landlord. Some leases have "escape clauses" that allow either party to cancel upon giving notice, typically 30 days. If the lease agreement you used for this rental does not include an escape clause, you have no general right to unilaterally cancel the lease.

How much would you pay to live where William Randolph Hearst and Marion Davies called home? How steep is too steep to sleep where John and Jacqueline Kennedy honeymooned? OK, rich kids of Instagram , what would you say to a Beverly Hills manse with a $600,000-a-month lease? And yes, if you can afford it, you can brag: Its listing agent, Jeffrey Hyland of Hilton & Hyland, says the Mediterranean-style house “may be the most expensive lease in the country.” So now we'll see if those tax increases we voted for in November really have chased all the rich people out of California.
