The City of San José, Rent-Controlled Apartments, Tenant Protection Ordinance (TPO), The Housing Department Rent Stabilization Program (RSP), Just Cause Eviction Tracking, Eviction Trends
This study is a two-part process evaluation of the RSP’s tracking of TPO (2017) just cause eviction filings. This study also intends to understand the RSP’s collected data when it is properly processed. This study’s research questions are as follows: Was the RSP’s process for tracking just cause evictions working to achieve the program’s goal in determining eviction outcomes? At what levels did landlords pursue just cause evictions for failure to pay rent? Is there a significant disparity between market-rate property managers’ eviction filings and rent-controlled apartment landlords’ eviction filings?
