For many landlords, the rent is coming due. Figures released Monday show that owners of Orange County apartment buildings suffered in 1992. Prices tumbled, few buildings were bought or sold, and vacancy rates edged upward. The average sale price per unit in complexes of 20 or more apartments slipped to $58,227 last year in the county, down from $68,400 in 1991 and the recent peak of $76,558 in 1989, according to the survey by CB Commercial Real Estate Group in Anaheim.

Over the objections of Supervisor Gloria Molina, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has approved plans by developer Jona Goldrich to build an apartment building and board-and-care facility for senior citizens in Marina del Rey.
