A very common type of eviction in San Francisco is one where a tenant is displaced so that an owner or owner’s relative can move into the unit. Unfortunately, however, OMI evictions are frequently abused by landlords who seek to evict tenants from their rent-controlled units. Hooshmand Law Group protects tenants from false owner-move ins and improper OMI eviction notices.Get Legal Advice
Many landlords in San Francisco and throughout California have built additional apartments without obtaining the require permits or inspections. These apartments were built in order to make money. Unfortunately, since permits were not obtained, since many times the apartments are built by unlicensed contractors, and since the apartments were not inspected to make sure they are safe, tenants are put at risk due to the safety violations. In addition, many tenants have significant problems living in an illegal/unpermitted apartment. For example, many experience a lack of heat, water and electrical problems and related violations. Rather than correct the problems, many landlords force the tenants to move resulting in further evictions and difficulties. Thankfully, there are remedies for these violations. If you believe you might be living in an unpermitted or illegal apartment it is important to talk with an attorney about your rights.Get Legal Advice
Unfortunately, many tenants are evicted every year in violation of the law. For example, many landlords either tell their tenants to move or make the apartment unpleasant so that the tenant will move. However, if a landlord evicts or tries to evict a tenant unlawfully, the landlord is subject to civil and/or criminal liability. If you believe your landlord is illegally forcing you to move it is important to contact the Hooshmand Law Group. The Hooshmand Law Group helps individuals recover justice for unlawful evictions in the SF Bay Area. Damages for wrongful eviction cases can easily reach millions of dollars due to the harm they cause.Get Legal Advice

Mark and his team were wonderful. Mark is very knowledgeable and was able to provide me with outstanding counsel when I had the misfortune of finding myself in an unpleasant housing ordeal in San Francisco. The case dragged on because of Covid, but he and his team were always very supportive and responsive to any of my questions and concerns. Mark really fought for me, and we were able to recover a fair amount. I very highly recommend Hooshmand Law Group to anyone needing help with tenant law.
Mark Hooshmand and his team helped me incredibly and I highly, highly recommend him. I was a tenant being wrongfully evicted and being treated terribly by my landlord. Mark not only won the lawsuit for me, but, on top of that, from start to finish, he supported me through the entire process, and I couldn't have asked for a better professional representation because I don't think there is one that exists out there.
Mark and his team were very knowledgeable about our case as tenants that we brought to him. From the time we called his office until we settled the case, Mark has always been very helpful and professional. He answered our email promptly with any questions we had and gave advice needed. His hard work and diligence resulted in a favorable outcome in our case. Our family had a great experience working with Mark and his team. We would highly recommend Hooshmand Law Group. Thank you, Mark, Laura, Jacob, and Tyson!
Mark was an absolute pleasure to work! This was my first time being involved in a legal matter, so I was incredibly nervous, but I contacted Mark and he immediately put my mind at ease. He made me feel completely comfortable and made sure that I understood every aspect of the case, my rights, and applicable law. I cannot say enough how impressed I was with his knowledge and level of expertise! I felt very well taken care of and believe Mark is just an all-around good person with integrity - a rarity to come by these days! Mark - thank you so very much for being so wonderful!!!
