I am not going to address anything except the appeal process. This is not a contract issue or transactional so I cannot comment further. Evictions are heard in small claims in front of a magistrate. They are heavily weighted in the favor of renters. Some counties such as Orange employ free attorneys devoted to deferring and defending evictions. An appeal from a small claims decision has specific time requirements and is to District court. Some District courts require arbitration for some matters. The Clerk of Court in the relevant county can advise on days left to appeal and whether there is an alternative dispute process required in this situation. If there is, the evidence requirements are not formal. A lay person can represent themselves.
