In addition to Supervisor Daly’s proposed legislation to limit rent increases on rent controlled units based on tenant income, expand renters’ rights to add roommates and cap “banked” rent increases, San Francisco Supervisor Avalos is expected to introduce legislation today to extend eviction protections to non-rent control tenants.
Avalos’ proposal is aimed at protecting people in foreclosed homes who are being evicted by banks, he said. Last year, 667 foreclosures occurred in the city, and at least a quarter of those had renters living in them, according to the Assessor-Recorder’s Office.
No word on the percentage of those tenants in that quarter of properties that have actually faced eviction. And of those, the percentage that weren’t under rent control.
