Daly City is facing an apparent eviction crisis as landlords are hurrying to oust tenants ahead of a state law taking effect in January that bars no-fault evictions.
“We want the City Council to stop the landlords from evicting people without reason,” said one tenant with an eviction notice notice in hand, Pablo Rubio, at a city council meeting Monday night reported on by KPIX. Rubio was among more than a dozen people showing their no-fault eviction notices at the meeting, which comes just a week after Gov. Gavin Newsom signed AB 1482. The new law will prevent landlords from doing what they’re doing in Daly City right now, requiring them to show just cause for an eviction, such as non-payment of rent.
