Yesterday, Tenants Together, California’s statewide organization for renters’ rights, released its fourth annual report on California renters in the foreclosure crisis. The report reveals a shocking statistic: over one million California renters have been directly impacted by their landlord’s foreclosure since the mortgage meltdown began.
According to Leah Simon-Weisberg, Legal Director at Tenants Together and principal author of the report, “We are five years and a million tenants into this crisis in California. Anti-eviction laws and aggressive enforcement efforts are needed to protect tenants from further abuse.”
