The anti-eviction mapping project has posted new updates:
The number of evictions in 2013 has surpassed evictions in 2006, the height of the real estate bubble. Total no-fault evictions are up 17% compared to 2006. The rate of increase over the past year is especially troubling and the graph shows a sharp increase.
There has been a 115% increase in total evictions since last year. Ellis Act use has increased by 175% compared to the year before. The Rent Board does not collect information on how many bedrooms or how many people reside in a unit.
If each evicted unit here represents between 1 and 5 people, we estimate between 716 and 3580 residents were evicted within the last year. READ MORE and see the interactive maps here.
