Suing San Francisco for shaking down rental property owners

July 24, 2014 I By PACIFIC LEGAL FOUNDATION

At a press conference outside of the federal courthouse in San Francisco, PLF announced a constitutional challenge to the city’s oppressive new “relocation assistance payment” mandate on rental property owners. If owners want to withdraw their units from the rental market so they can occupy their own property, the new law demands that they make an astronomical payment to their tenants. The price tag is so high — $117,000, in the case of our lead plaintiffs — that it effectively forces owners to stay in the landlord business whether they like it or not.
