Our professional staff can start your eviction today and handle each step for you from beginning to end.

According to a recent Redfin Eviction Study found that approximately 6,600 or one out of every 63 Orange County renters were evicted in 2014 making it the 17th-highest eviction rate among of the 32 largest metropolitan areas nationwide that data is available for.
Another recent study based upon the US Census Bureau 2015 American Community Survey found that over fifty-eight percent of Orange County renters spent more than 30 percent of their income on rent in 2015, which is considered “cost burdened” by economists and federal agencies. This trend is expected to continue with a lack of low cost housing alternatives in the county.
There is no rent control in Orange County, so landlords can raise a tenant’s rent as much and as frequently as they wish, provided they give proper notice of the change in writing. However, as in all of California rent increases of more than 10% during any 12 month period requires 60 days written notice.

While the Civil Division court staff can assist you in person with forms, filing documents, and procedural matters from Monday-Friday, 8:00am - 4:00pm and the courthouses has self help rooms for study – the Orange County official website also makes it clear that eviction cases can be very complicated and requires getting legal help by an attorney.
Tenants can become very tenacious defending their desire to remain on the property as long as they can without paying rent. As with most counties, an Orange County landlord who begins an eviction as a retaliatory action to get rid of a tenant who, for example complains about what are known as “Mandated repairs” like the heating system not working or reports other habitability issues to a government regulatory body is liable for what are known as landlord retaliation lawsuits which can be very expensive.
Orange County Courts are e-Filing mandated and must use a preferred e-Filing vendor to process all court filings which is why it is best to use an Attorney to assist you with the eviction process. Each step must be followed to the exact letter of the law before a court will render an Unlawful Detainer judgement. Landlords cannot physically evict a tenant on their own and the final step of a successful eviction process being an Orange County Sheriff locking the tenant out.
