My question involves an eviction in the state of: California
My nightmare tenant has answered my court summons and now we have a trial date. She's being evicted for not paying rent (she's also a nightmare with the police having been summoned 7 times to her place in the last 60 days). She will claim withholding for repairs, but her claims are baseless. I know she doesn't have the rent. Will I need an attorney or can I fly solo at this portion of the process?
