Tenants and their supporters rallied in front of 1049 Market Street on November 12, demanding that landlord John Gall withdraw eviction notices for the building. Gall wants to convert residentially occupied units at 1049 Market to offices, a move that would displace tenants and reverse progress toward revitalizing Mid-Market. It’s the residents who keep the street alive after office workers leave, which is why the city is trying to increase housing in the area.

Oakland City Council: Tenant Relocation Assistance Delayed, But Moratorium on Rent Control Loophole Passes

Extra assistance for renters who are displaced through no-fault evictions failed to pass a second reading at the Oakland City Council last night after Councilmember Annie Campbell Washington had the legislation pulled from the agenda's consent portion of the calendar and scheduled for a future council meeting's non-consent portion, where it will likely be debated and amended.

L.A. Officials Enact New Affordable Housing Law

Amid skyrocketing rents and a housing crisis, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti Friday signed and praised a new law that aims to strengthen enforcement of the city's Rent Stabilization Ordinance.

The law will require landlords who demolish rent-controlled units under the Ellis Act to either replace them one-for-one with affordable units or make 20 percent of new units affordable, depending on which is higher.

L.A. Leaders Give Renters More Protection Against Shady Landlords

Seeking to protect Los Angeles renters from unscrupulous landlords, the Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday voted to require landlords to tell tenants of their rental rights during so-called “cash for keys” deals.

Under the new law, landlords seeking to remove tenants from rent-controlled properties with cash offers must now draw up buyout agreements with those renters. A copy must be filed with the city.

Additionally, tenants may back out of the agreement for any reason within 30 days.
