Attorney David Brewer figured it would be a good time to shop for a new office lease--but he had no idea it would be this good. Brewer's law firm is about to renew its lease at an upscale San Diego office building for 15% less rent than it agreed to three years ago. The deal will cap months of shopping and dickering with eager-to-please landlords in the overbuilt San Diego office market.

It's called "sewer service." A landlord or process server draws up eviction papers but doesn't deliver them, as the law requires. The tenant then gets tossed out of the home with little or no notice. The old ploy, a holdover from the days when shady process servers and landlords threw documents in the sewers, has emerged as a major issue in an era of record low vacancy rates and sky-high rents across Southern California.

Strong economic growth in Orange County propelled companies to lease larger quarters and, in turn, pushed the office vacancy rate to an all-time low of 8.2% countywide, according to an industry report released Monday. The rate dropped to its lowest level since records were first kept in 1988--even though a spate of new buildings opened to handle some of the demand, according to the report by commercial brokerage Grubb & Ellis Inc. in Newport Beach. Lease rates, meanwhile, rose to a record $2.

The office market in Los Angeles and Orange counties continued to see vacancy rates drop during the third quarter, but tenants remained highly sensitive to rising rents.

An apartment shortage is fast approaching as San Diego County's population growth continues at 3% to 4% annually, the supply of available land dwindles and building permits become harder to obtain, housing experts say. The vacancy rate at apartment buildings surveyed in fall by the San Diego Apartment Assn. was 5% in the city and 5.4% countywide, contrasted with 8% in the city and 8.9% countywide last spring. Vacancy rates below 5% are considered by many experts to indicate a shortage.
