I have tenants I allowed to move in the rental property a week early from the official move in date, but when that date came they gave me excuses not to pay the deposit and always paying the rent late between 3-14 days. I am tired of dealing with them. How can I leagally evict them and where can I get the legal forms.

Though the answer really depends on what your rental agreement states, the usual process is that a landlord who wants to end a month to month agreement can do so by serving a written notice on the tenant (can be 30, 60 or 90 days).
In addition, a landlord can give a tenant a written three-day notice under certain circumstances.
On California’s Department of Consumer Affairs website, you can read about the eviction process:
