TITLE 2. CREDIT SALES
CHAPTER 1. RETAIL INSTALLMENT SALES
Article 12.3. Actions
California Civil Code Section 1812.10




1812.10.  An action on a contract or installment account under the
provisions of this chapter shall be tried in the county in which the
contract was in fact signed by the buyer, in the county in which the
buyer resided at the time the contract was entered into, in the
county in which the buyer resides at the commencement of the action,
or in the county in which the goods purchased pursuant to the
contract have been so affixed to real property as to become a part of
that real property.
   If within the county there is a municipal court, having
jurisdiction of the subject matter, established in the city and
county or judicial district in which the contract was in fact signed
by the buyer, or in which the buyer resided at the time the contract
was entered into, or in which the buyer resides at the commencement
of the action or in which the goods purchased pursuant to the
contract have been so affixed to real property as to become a part of
that real property, then that court is the proper court for the
trial of the action.  Otherwise, any court in the county, having
jurisdiction of the subject matter, is the proper court for the trial
thereof.
   In any action subject to the provisions of this section,
concurrently with the filing of the complaint, the plaintiff shall
file an affidavit stating facts showing that the action has been
commenced in a county or judicial district described in this section
as a proper place for the trial of the action.  Those facts may be
stated in a verified complaint and shall not be stated on information
or belief.  When that affidavit is filed with the complaint, a copy
thereof shall be served with the summons.  If a plaintiff fails to
file the affidavit or state facts in a verified complaint required by
this section, no further proceedings shall be had, but the court
shall, upon its own motion or upon motion of any party, dismiss the
action without prejudice; however, the court may, on such terms as
may be just, permit the affidavit to be filed subsequent to the
filing of the complaint and a copy of the affidavit shall be served
on the defendant.  The time to answer or otherwise plead shall date
from that service.
