TMZ has learned self-admitted steroid user Jose Canseco was just evicted from a home he was renting in Los Angeles.

Jose Canseco
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, the former MLB star ... turned steroid finger pointer ... turned reality star ... turned celebrity boxer ... turned alleged deadbeat  ... received a notice to "vacate" a Northridge home he had been renting since last year.

A source connected to Canseco tells us the trouble began after Jose missed two months of rent.

We're told Jose left the home late Wednesday night ... and won't be allowed back.

Yesterday morning, we spotted Jose at Fred Segal on Melrose ... who gave us the 'ol "no comment" when asked about the situation.

@Whamo agreed, but Jose did alienate a lot of people in his life, and he's basically a pariah and persona non grata for all those decisions he's made (to violate the trust of others) in the past. Let's face it, Jose's life is a mess right now, and he's about to meet the bottom. I wish him the best of luck.

Hanging to da lef    

I liked baseball back then when these guys smashed the **** outta the ball and they looked like NFL linebackers, now they look like soccer players. Heck!, Highschool and College softball players are bigger than MLB players now!

OK, missed two months rent payments, apparently "flat broke" (pun intended), and was shopping at Fred Segal?!? Is this point purposefully downplayed in the story or not fully realized? Fred Segal makes Neiman Marcus look common! Has this man looked into, oh, I don't know - TARGET?

Unless he actually moved out they can't prevent him from coming back. They have to get an actual eviction warrant from the court. The owner giving his own eviction notice is just the first step in the process.

Throwing lemons at you    

"turned alleged deadbeat" ?

Welcome to the reality of living in southern California. A one bedroom apartment (even a dump)rents for around $1,60...0/month. People are losing their jobs and cannot pay the obscene rent monies demanded by landlords and rental mangement businesses in 2010. Leasing a house is often in the $10,000./month range. Renting/leasing is like flushing money down the toilet.

Most landlords are a notch beneath sleazy used-car salespersons. Yes, there is an Eviction procedure for non-payment of the rent/violation of the terms of the lease, etc. However, landlords and their greedy lawyers daily violate California tenants rights and obtain a judgment to evict by hook or crook. Under California law, a process server needs to personally serve the complaint do***ents, or, serve the do***ents by substitute service. Although it is illegal to do so -- landlords and their lawyers use rogue process servers who prepare a 'diligence-to-serve' Declaration riddled with lies, ie: they try once to serve the do***ents but no one was home, so, they declare that they tried six times. Of course, the Court believes the lies of the landlord/lawyers and their process servers because they are licensed by the State of California. Back when Process Servers were predominately white males - that industry ethics and honesty reigned. About 15 years ago, that industry changed because hispanics/latino process servers will do anything to earn a buck - legal or illegal. Mostly illegal.

Jose Canseco, if you read this -- hang on to whatever money you still have and run like hell away from the crooks in southern California. Move elsewhere. Reading about the corruption in the City of Bell should persuade you.

I don't think you can be evicted after missing only two months rent. The process takes a long time.
