San Francisco sues landlords who evicted tenants for Airbnb

Yahoo! National News - 4 hours 13 min ago
By Gerry Shih SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The city of San Francisco sued two landlords on Wednesday for allegedly evicting tenants to rent out rooms on such websites as Airbnb, opening a new front in a controversy over increasingly popular home-rental services. In separate lawsuits filed by City Attorney Dennis Herrera, the city named two groups of defendants that it called the "most egregious" offenders because they evicted disabled tenants before listing rooms online for as much as $595 a night. The lawsuits have come amidst a broader crackdown on illegal rentals in San Francisco, where the rental services, which also include Homeaway.com and VRBO.com, have been blamed for pushing up housing prices because they remove rooms from the rental market. Sites like Airbnb, which help landlords list rooms and take a cut of the payments, have operated in a legal gray area in many U.S. markets - and sometimes outright illegally in cities including San Francisco, which outlaws rentals for less than 30 days.
