Tenants in the Bay Area cities of San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley have additional protections in the form of limitations on a landlord’s ability to evict. This means that a landlord can only evict for specific reasons the most common of which is the non-payment of rent. However, it is imperative that if you believe the landlord is retaliating against you for requesting repairs, or simply to increase your rent if you have lived in one place for a long time, that you contact attorneys dedicated to defending you against an eviction or unlawful detainer lawsuit.
