Eviction Protection

Citing an NBC Bay Area investigation that claimed that 25 percent of evicted tenants had been wrongfully evicted, District 2 Supervisor Mark Farrell introduced legislation in April to force landlords who are evicting tenants to prove they are doing so legally.

According to the proposed law, landlords who push out a tenant so the landlord can occupy the unit would need to “sign a declaration under penalty of perjury” they will follow existing eviction law, and they would need to file proof with the Rent Board showing they or their relative is residing in the residence where the tenant was evicted.

“An eviction can be like a death sentence, especially for elderly tenants,” said Farrell.
