Seniors and the Disabled Call on San Francisco Realtors to Not Oppose Ellis Act Reform

Housing activists held a rally today at the San Francisco Association of Realtors to call for a moratorium on evictions of seniors and the disabled. The activists also called on the realtor's association not to oppose an Ellis Act reform bill introduced in Sacramento last month. The Ellis Act was designed to allow landlords to sell their property in order to go out of business. Housing activists say real estate speculators have been using the law to evict seniors and the disabled in order to turn a profit. Pacific’s nick St. Charles filed this report.
