Unlawful Detainer Verified By Attorney

Long Beach, CA |

I am aware that a unlawful detainer may be verified by Plaintiffs Attorney however I was under the impression that it must be accompanied by an affidavit by plaintiff?

  1. No, if the verification is signed by the attorney because the plaintiff is not within the county, there is no requirement that the unlawful detainer complaint also be accompanied by an affidavit by plaintiff.

  2. It does not have to be accompanied by an affidavit.


  3. There is no requirement that it be accompanied by an affidavit. You already have the verification.
