Oakland tenants say bully landlords taking advantage of market
Landlords mistreating tenants? (Gasp!) Of course there’s a strong economic incentive for landlords to subject tenants to this kind of behavior. But, it’s not right.
Renting is a two way street. By renting units the bad economic times, landlords are receiving money for units that would otherwise be vacant. Now, with the economy up, they have to give a little bit. They traded fast, immediate cash for lower future earnings. If they wanted to garner higher rents, they should’ve just left the unit empty during the recession.
