Estate sales

An estate sale is held when the resident is either deceased or must be relocated to a care facility and the home will be vacated and/or sold.


  • If you are going to hold an estate sale, call Code Enforcement at (714) 667-2780 and provide the following information:
    • Address for sale
    • Date(s) of the sale
    • Who is running the sale?
  • If you are conducting the sale on behalf of a resident as a business operation, you must have a business license for the sale.  If you are selling on behalf of a relative, no license is required.
  • All estate sales must abide by the following guidelines:
    • All items must be kept out of public view, either within the home or in the backyard or a garage.
    • All items must be from the household - you cannot bring in other items for resale.
    • All signs for the sale must be professional in nature and include either the address for the sale or the phone number of the seller.
    • One sign may be displayed in the front yard of the property.
    • Directional signs may be posted in the same manner as real estate open house signs.
    • Signs may not be posted on telephone poles, streetlights, traffic signs, city trees, or any other structure in the public right-of-way.
