What CAN’T an Unlawful Detainer do in Los Angeles, California?

No security deposits: 

  • An Unlawful Detainer can’t solve fights about damages or security deposits.
  • No cross complaints: 

    You can’t file a cross complaint in Unlawful Detainer actions. The defendant has to file a separate action if they want to get money back from the plaintiff.

  • No future rental losses: 

    The court can’t give you damages for rent you lost after the judgment. For example: There’s a judgment against the defendant. It takes the sheriff a week to evict the defendant. The plaintiff has to file a separate action to get back the rent lost in that week.

The Law Office of David Piotrowski represents landlords throughout southern California and can assist with a tenant eviction.
