Victory for Renters Rights-- No Evictions without Just Cause!

 

rentersApril 18 2017...By mobilizing renters citywide to march and rally and turn out in force to the April 18 City Council meeting, the Renters Rights Coalition won a great victory when the City Council passed an ordinance requiring landlords to have a "just cause" for evicting tenants.

The city's 450,000 renters will also have protection under the Ellis Act and the City Council will also look into capping rent increases in the 43,000 rent-controlled units at 3% instead of the current 5%.
