Discovery in California unlawful detainer (eviction) cases proceeds similarly to discovery in other types of civil actions. One major difference, however, is that discovery in eviction cases typically moves much quicker.
I previously discussed the use of discovery in California eviction cases in a recent blog article. The video below provides a helpful overview for those who would like to know what discovery is, how it works, and under what circumstances it may be beneficial to utilize discovery in a California eviction case. The video briefly touches on three types of discovery methods: Requests for Admissions, Request for Production of Documents, and Interrogatories.
If you as a landlord have been served with discovery in your California unlawful detainer case, or if you are contemplating drafting a set of discovery questions to send to your tenant, we may be able to help. Remember, though, we only assist landlords and can only provide a free consultation to landlords whose rental property is located in our service area. If you are outside of our service area, we provide a paid consultation on a case-by-case basis.
