Fraudulent eviction: San Francisco is letting landlords get away with murder

It should be the outrage of San Francisco.

San Francisco landlords are evicting tenants fraudulently, and reports say these fake-out evictions may number in the hundreds. Landlords claim they will move in themselves or move in a relative, but in reality, the mothers, brothers or whomever never even pick out new curtains.

Instead, landlords throw the apartments back on the market and jack up the rent.

Why isn’t the City of San Francisco doing more to stop the fraudsters?

According to NBC Bay Area, the DA’s Office hasn’t prosecuted a single landlord in a decade.

If you’re poor, old, blind or disabled, your pretty much screwed. If well-healed landlords want your home they are going to take it and there’s nothing you can do about it.
