Evictions And Unlawful Detainers: What You Need To Know

In California, a necessary step in the process of evicting a tenant from a residential or commercial property is filing an unlawful detainer. Essentially, an unlawful detainer is an eviction notice, but the process is complex and requires skilled legal guidance.

At So. Cal. Realty Law, APC, we are skilled trial attorneys who work hard for our real estate clients. We take on eviction issues for property owners across San Diego and Southern California. We understand the law and what is at stake; we will be on your side.

Aggressive Representatives For Your Eviction Case

California has extensive tenant rights laws, and securing an eviction is a challenge and, at times, an uphill battle. However, just because it’s difficult doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Evictions are an important tool to keep your property profitable.

Generally, a successful ground for eviction includes:

  • Default on rent
  • Breach of lease
  • Causing a nuisance
  • Criminal activity in or on the property
  • Not allowing lawful entry to the landlord

Once your original petition and notice are filed, the tenant has several days to meet or fix the issues. If they do not fix them, you may move to the next stages.

Remote Representation During Unlawful Detainer Consultations And Hearings

AtSo. Cal. Realty Law, APC, we are proud to offer remote virtual services that can be used in eviction and unlawful detainer cases. You need to handle this quickly, and virtual services often help to bridge geographical gaps and streamline the process. When both sides are busy, our firm still prioritizes our clients and leverages technology to seek cutting-edge solutions.

California offers remote services for those who wish to use them in unlawful detainer cases. The court has the discretion to choose the type of technology that will be used. As a general rule, most of these hearings will be carried out by video or audio conference calls using the Microsoft Teams App. This app has been chosen both for its compatibility with many other systems and because it is free to use.

Regulations And Restrictions

One key thing to keep in mind is that it is prohibited to record, photograph or rebroadcast a virtual hearing. Doing so could lead to a citation for being in contempt of court. This is just one reason why it’s important to have an experienced and professional legal team on your side when working your way through this process. We always put our clients first, and we will make sure that you avoid mistakes, explore all of your legal options and maximize your chances of success.

Why Are Virtual Services Used?

These cases are handled by the Overflow Department, and virtual hearings are often used when the court system is simply overloaded with cases. It slows the process down to have every hearing in person, so the court will choose cases where an in-person meeting is not necessary and will authorize the use of virtual options. At So. Cal. Realty Law, APC, we are well-versed in the applicable technology, we have been through the process many times, and we can offer the guidance and instruction you need.
