Landlord Retracts Outrageous Demands After Letter Goes Viral

Tenant rights attorney Jackie Ravenscroft is cited to explain the legalities when one S.F. landlord requires tenants to meet a certain income level. Causing a public outcry, the landlord of a rent-controlled building in the Lower Haight area notified his tenants they must provide proof of $100,000 annual income or move out. That, Ravenscroft says, is illegal, although a landlord can make a similar demand of prospective tenants.
