Eviction Wire

We've been following the uptick in Ellis Act evictions, but landlords are also initiating more "at-fault" evictions for things like cooking late at night, parking outside the lines, or, yeesh, keeping a service animal, says a new report from the legal aid group Eviction Defense Collaborative. At-fault evictions come with fewer strings than the "no fault" Ellis Act, and according to data from the 2,000-plus cases the group worked on, such evictions aren't exactly equal opportunity. Black households accounted for 29 percent of these eviction suits, though they make up only 6 percent of the city's population. And a full 88 percent qualified as very low-income. [SF Examiner]
