You may be able to lower your rent due to past owner move-in eviction fraud
NBC’s Investigative Unit mapped out every owner move-in eviction in San Francisco over the past three years. You can use the interactive map toward the bottom of this article to find evictions in your neighborhood. While many of these evictions are legal, if your address is listed and you are not the landlord or a relative of the property owner, someone may have been wrongfully evicted from that unit, which might entitle you to lock in the previous tenant’s cheaper rent.
If your address is listed, contact NBC, 888-996-TIPS (including anonymously), or email them here; report to the City to request a rent reduction.
