Ellis Act EvictionsThe Ellis Act is a key mechanism for undermining San Francisco’s rent control laws. The state law gives landlords the right to evict all tenants, even if they have always been good tenants and paid their rent on time. The use of the Ellis act is a legal deception where owners pretend to go out of business.
