Data notes

More About Ellis Act Evictions: The Ellis Act is a state law that allows landlords to remove their rent stabilized property from the rental market, by demolishing it, or by converting to ownership units like condominiums. The tenants living in these rent stabilized units are thereby evicted through no-fault of their own. Tenant advocates note that Ellis Act evictions are examples of displacement and the removal of affordable housing.
