Los Angeles County has two additional courthouses that will start hearing unlawful detainer cases starting in 2015. Unlawful detainers can be filed in the Van Nuys Courthouse and Norwalk Courthouse starting January 5, 2015.
If your case was filed in one of the hub locations prior to January 5, 2015, that courthouse will still hear the trial or other motions for the case. Previously, the hub courthouses for unlawful detainers were Stanley Mosk, Santa Monica Courthouse, Governor George Deukmejian Courthouse, Pasadena Courthouse, and the Michael D. Antonovich Antelope Valley North Courthouse.
Basically, the Norwalk Courthouse will begin hearing unlawful detainer cases for properties located in Lakewood, Compton, Lynwood, Norwalk, Whittier, South Gate, Huntington Park, Maywood, and Pico Rivera. The Van Nuys Courthose will beging hearing cases coming from the San Fernando Valley, including the communities of Van Nuys, Canoga Park, Valley Village, North Hollywood, Panorama City, Calabasas, parts of Woodland Hills, and Agoura Hills.
This list is not exhuastive, so if you have a question of where your unlawful detainer will be filed you can contact my office or the the Los Angeles Superior Court Filing Court Locator.
At Marinaccio Law, I offer flat fee evictions for cases where your tenant does not pay the rent. As part of the flat fee, I will also review Three Day Notices to Pay Rent or Quit. If a tenant files a responsive pleading, there are additional fees that could apply depending on the appearances in Court and work required. Please contact Anthony at 818-839-5220 to set up an appointment.
