    Renter's guide to Santa Ana, CA

    Welcome to sunny Santa Ana!

    This Southern California city is just 10 miles away from the coast, a short 8.5 miles from Anaheim, 13 miles from Newport Beach, and 32 miles from Los Angeles. With a size of 27 square-miles, it would take about 18 Santa Ana’s to fill the city of LA.

    Forbes ranked Santa Ana the fourth-safest city in the country making it a very desirable place to live.

    If its safety or proximity to Los Angeles isn’t enough to convince you, consider the great weather, with average summer highs of 83ºF and mild winter lows of 47ºF. Factor in relatively little rainfall – about 13 inches per year – and the light breezes of the famed Santa Ana Winds, and it’s practically paradise.

    Tips for renting in Santa Ana, CA

    Ready to pack your bags? Well, before your do, we want to give you an idea of what to expect when it comes to local tenant laws.

    For starters, there are only four situations where your landlord can hold your security deposit after you move out. That includes unpaid rent, cleaning fees, repair fees for normal wear and damages, or replacing any personal property damaged by the tenant.

    In all other cases, they're required to return your deposit in full.

    The landlord must also give 30 days’ notice if they want you to vacate your rental. However, if a severe violation of the lease occurs – like irreparable damage to the unit, drug dealing, or injury to a fellow tenant – the owner has the right to a 3-day termination of the lease.

    Things for renting

    Santa Ana, CA demographics

    Living in Santa Ana, CA

    One of the many pros of living in Santa Ana is its diverse population. The city has a large Hispanic population, whose culture has melded right into the suburban landscape. It's also a highly walkable and bikeable city, thanks to improvements like plentiful sidewalks and larger lanes for bikes. 

    But because it doesn’t get much rain per year, Santa Ana is also one of the most drought-prone areas in the country, which puts it at risk of wildfires. And when the Santa Ana Winds hit full force in fall and winter, they only add fuel to the flames, causing any wildfires to spread more rapidly.
