“We’ve seen so many instances of corporate landlords buying up properties and sending out eviction notices so they can clear out buildings, make minor renovations, and then raise rents. We’ve got families who’ve lived in their homes for decades who face landlords who want to double and triple their rents. This ordinance empowers these families with basic safeguards that will help keep them in their homes.” Lisa Owens, Executive Director, City Life/Vida Urbana
