The experienced tenant attorneys on our team will take the time to get to know you and your story and develop a strategy for legal action to hold your landlord accountable.

What Makes an Eviction in San Francisco Wrongful?

In the City of San Francisco a landlord must have one of sixteen “just causes” in order to evict a tenant.  These include fault and “no fault” reasons for an eviction, including:

  • Failure to pay rent
  • Criminal activity on premises
  • Breach of a rental agreement
  • Damage to the premises
  • Owner or relative move-in evictions

A wrongful eviction occurs when a landlord terminates a tenant’s tenancy 1) without a just cause or 2) with a just cause for owner move in or under Ellis but does not follow the requirements for how the property is used after the tenant moves out.

If you believe you were wrongfully evicted from your home, a wrongful eviction attorney from Wolford Wayne can help.
