San Francisco sues landlords who evicted tenants for Airbnb

S.F. tenant rights attorney Joseph Tobener represents San Francisco Tenants Union in suing multiple landlords accused of evicting tenants to rent out rooms on websites like Airbnb, VRBO.com and Homeaway. The predatory practice displaces longtime legal renters from their homes to list their space online for as much as $600 a night. The practice is illegal for multiple reasons, Tobener says, including San Francisco law, which prohibits rentals of less than 30 days.
