If your tenant files a demurrer on an eviction case in California, you should immediately hire an attorney. Legally, a demurrer is filed to obtain the courts ruling on the formal or legal sufficiency of the allegations in your complaint. A good majority of the time, however, a tenant will file a demurrer simply to delay their eviction and to cause you, the landlord, more headaches and money. An attorney may be able to speed up the hearing on the tenant’s demurrer and get a ruling on that demurrer within days, thereby minimizing the delay.
