State court rejects bid to limit Ellis Act evictions

Source: San Francisco Chronicle

An appeals court this week rejected San Francisco’s latest attempt to restrict tenant evictions under the state’s Ellis Act, an ordinance requiring landlords to wait 10 years before merging rental units into one residence that they could sell as a single-family home.

The Ellis Act, backed by the real estate industry and passed in 1985, allows property owners who decide to go out of the rental business to evict their tenants. Cities intent on preserving their supply of rental housing have tried to set conditions on landlords — a previous San Francisco ordinance, struck down by the courts in 2004, would have required the owner of a residential hotel to provide replacement housing, or pay a fee to the city, before evicting all tenants.
