$1,000,000 Total Recovery for Long-Term Tenant Wrongfully Evicted Under a False Owner Move-In

The Hooshmand Law Group recovered $1,000,000 for a tenant who had lived in his unit for more than 40 years before being falsely evicted pursuant to the owner move-in exception under San Francisco Law. The San Francisco law requires that an owner move-in eviction follow certain strict guidelines. The landlord in this case did not follow the guidelines and intended to make a profit on the unit. The owner attempt to conceal the falseness of the eviction; however, the Hooshmand Law Group helped prove the violation and recover significant damages. The recovery compensated the tenant for the loss of a rent controlled unit, damages and emotional harm.
