San Jose dumps proposal to evict tenants for criminal activity

It also would help with issues like blight and unresponsive landlords, advocates said."In some ways I think it will be a better program than what I originally put out," Khamis said. Ed Schroder, who oversees the department's southern division, said some landlords already have provisions that allow an eviction if someone is arrested. Specialists will also help landlords and tenants understand their rights and decipher what their leases say -- especially when it comes to criminal activity.Police Capt.

San Jose rent control: Council caps increases at 5 percent

Even if the increases were reduced to zero percent, he argued, the "overwhelming majority" of rental units in the city would continue to see rent increases because of market demand.The only solution is building more affordable housing, Nguyen said, and revenue from a $1 billion bond would do that. "Our goal is to give people a nice exit strategy."In a related action Tuesday, the City Council voted 7-4 to eliminate a program that allowed landlords to pass off debt to renters.

San Jose: Rent control changes are coming -- but how much?

This is important, housing advocates argue, because as City Hall tightens rent control, some landlords are threatening to go out of business. "None of these proposals truly address the real issue facing San Jose, and that's the need for more housing," said Howard, adding that if changes are inevitable, landlords prefer a fixed rate -- not tying it to inflation -- for more predictability.Contact Ramona Giwargis at 408-920-5705.

Catherine Nelson: Just-cause eviction will help children

These protections are essential to providing stability for tenants. The quality of rent-controlled units in San José will never improve without just cause protections. Just cause protections require landlords to provide a reason--such as non-payment of rent, violation of the lease, or nuisance--before evicting tenants. Any rent control policy must still guarantee landlords a fair return; landlords can obtain rent adjustments for capital improvements and other costs.

San Jose: Final rent control changes released

One would allow landlords with historically-low rents to increase above the cap to "catch up" with other properties. Some formed a political committee and are eyeing a potential ballot measure to replace the city's rent control."What we hear from landlords is we don't see a problem and you'll ruin our business," Morales-Ferrand said. Landlords rallied against the plan, saying reducing allowable rent increases would impact their ability to stay in business.
