It has been a couple of weeks since I last posted. Since that time we have been engaged in a very lengthy commercial unlawful detainer. The rules do very greatly for commercial and residential unlawful detainers. As the attorney or the party in pro per, you really have to know the ins and outs of the unlawful detainer world to maximize your chances for success. Just like we do in unlimited jurisdiction real estate matters, we always begin by examining the applicable jury instruction regardless of whether the case is a commercial or residential unlawful detainer. That way we can focus on the elements that we need to prove or disprove at trial. I am sure this seems rather obvious, but we are often surprised by the sideshow’s that often take place in unlawful detainer matters that do not have anything to do with the actual elements required to prove or disprove the case.
We recommend studying the requirements for the unlawful detainer claim and coming to court prepared to present evidence on those issues.
