This tool aims to protect renters by ensuring that landlords can only evict with proper cause. Just cause eviction controls are an important tool for promoting tenant stability – particularly in low vacancy and expensive housing markets – where landlords may be tempted to evict tenants in order to obtain higher rents.
To be most effective, this tool need to be paired with grassroots education, and other tools such as rent control. This is an effective tool in urban and suburban areas that are experiencing gentrification and displacement.
