Won on Reducing Fraudulent Owner Move-In Evictions!
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed unanimously the law led by the Tenants Union for reducing fraudulent owner move-in evictions. Thanks to all the housing organizations, tenants, and Supervisors Peskin, Kim, and Ronen’s offices for the excellent debate skills. We are the mighty, mighty tenants movement!!! Research by the Tenants Union and the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project found 48 percent of landlords fail to file the eviction as required. The reason of owner move-ins are frequently used to evict tenants, but often the owner does not move in and just raises the rent.
