Despite the many laws the Board of Supervisors has enacted to discourage landlords from evicting tenants from rent-controlled units, the city does little to enforce these measures. Most of the rules limit what a landlord can do with a unit post-eviction, but no one's exactly watching what happens to the units, either—leaving enforcement basically up to former tenants and neighbors who happen to notice something amiss. The Chronicle spoke to one evicted resident, whose former neighbors tipped her off that her landlord was renting out her old unit on Airbnb. [SFGate]
