Please note rent due from March 1,2020 – August 31, 2020 is a different notice than rent owed from September 1,2020 – January 31, 2020 and we do not recommend serving both notices at the same time. ** Please note that proceeding on an Unlawful Detainer based on rent owing from March 1,2020 – January 31,2020 is done at your own risk as there are no guarantees on getting possession for rent owing in that time period. The court will allow the defendant to file for a hearing if they claim they have excusable neglect reason for not providing the declaration to the notice to pay as required.
2. The minimum flat fee retainer to process a COVID-based residential default eviction is only $1,675 & up which covers your attorney’s fees, plus court filing costs, electronic filing costs, service of process costs, court costs for the Clerk’s Judgment for a Writ of Restitution, and Sheriff costs to enforce the Writ of Restitution .. The typical COVID-based residential default eviction includes the following services:
(1) Drafting and filing the Summons & Complaint for Unlawful Detainer,
(2) Coordination with process serving,
(3) Drafting and filing the Request to Enter Default, the Clerk’s Judgment for a Writ of Restitution, and the Instructions to the Civil Division of the Sheriff’s Office,
(4) Delivery and processing of said paperwork with the court and the Sheriff’s Office.
If you wish to obtain money judgment against the tenant there is no additional charge. Upon signing this retainer you are agreeing for the Law Office to fully proceed with the collection of the monies owed to you. If you do not wish to have our office obtain a judgment for you, you must notify the Law Office for each case after the tenancy property has been restored to you – we automatically obtain a money judgment against the former tenant(s). Fees, costs or court charges are subject to change at option of Law Office.
* Add $25 if a Pre-Judgment Claim of Right of Possession is requested

**Please note that on any Residential Unlawful Detainer that is based on rent owing from March 1, 2020 – January 31, 2021, there is no guarantee that you will get possession of your property by filing the Unlawful Detainer. Under AB 3088, the defendants can file for a hearing up to the date of the lockout regarding the reason the declaration re: COVID was not submitted timely and if the judge grants their motion for hearing, the case can be dismissed.
