Small claims court has many different rules and procedures than other courts. It has many more of the elements “as seen on tv,” as very little is documents or correspondence is exchanged between attorneys, or the plaintiff and defendant. Usually attorneys are retained on a flat fee basis, and work is not performed hourly. Discovery rarely happens because the court wants to keep everything moving. A defendant does not even need to file an answer or disclose witnesses in small claims court. If a defendant chooses not to file an answer, the court will assume all allegations are denied. You are allowed to file additional pleadings, such as a counterclaim, but must ask the court for leave to file it. Many surprises can happen the day of trial, since both sides are uncertain as to who will be called as a witness and what evidence will be presented. Both parties will see all documents each side will offer up for the first time at trial. All rules of evidence do apply in small claims court, but in order to enhance efficiency, the court and counsel are usually more relaxed on objections when a witness is testifying or when a document is being requested to be admitted into evidence. Although small claims court is in the same court as all other litigation, it truly has its own policies and procedures.
Can a real estate broker represent a California property owner in a small claims court in a dispute involving the property?
Yes. Under the California Code of Civil Procedure, there is a way that a real estate broker (property management) can represent the property owner.
California Code of Civil Procedure Section 116.540
CCP 116.540 states:
(h) A party who is an owner of rental real property may appear and participate in a small claims action through a property agent under contract with the owner to manage the rental of that property, if :
(1) the owner has retained the property agent principally to manage the rental of that property and not principally to represent the owner in small claims court,
(2) the claim relates to the rental property.
This section allows a California property management company to appear in small claims court on behalf of the owner of the property in landlord-tenant related lawsuits.
Should a property owner represent an owner in small claims court?

Dr. Carol Francis invites Tom Paladino who invented a Scalar instrument based on Tesla Technology. Scalar treatments claim to promotes health and wellbeing with phenomenal results. Paladino claims to have successfully used his scalar instrument to remotely disassemble pathogens in the body (including HIV, Herpes, Candida and the Ebola virus.)
