Renters Beware: Foreclosure Isn't "Just Cause" for Eviction

New, 2 comments

The law may not be on their side, but that isn't stopping banks from trying to toss renters out of repossessed buildings -- with a disturbing amount of success. Foreclosure evictions are up more than 250 percent this year, compounded by a 250 percent last year, too. About a quarter of all foreclosed buildings in San Francisco are rentals. And with the foreclosures showing no sign of slowing down, this probably means a lot more threatening notes slipped surreptitiously under doors in the night. Said one housing advocate, ""Given the horror stories we are hearing from the rest of the country, I am very concerned looking into our future." [SF Examiner]
