San Fransisco Surge in Owner Move-in Evictions

Housing organizations are reporting a rise in evictions where the landlord claims they are taking up residency in the unit. The rise in reported owner move-in evictions as they are called, included multiple notices filed by several landlords who have current legal action pending against them for allegedly employing 'strong-arm and unlawful tactics' in tenant eviction. In protest of what advocated refer to as an abuse of the law, San Fransisco families threatened with eviction rallied outside a building in the Castro where some tenants have been served with a 60 day notice to vacate for an owner move-in, even though there are empty units on the property. Pacifica's Mike Kohn reports.
