How to Research

As we have found, many of the speculators responsible for Ellis Act Evictions are in fact hiding behind LLCs and other large and convoluted investment companies. This lends impunity to the individuals responsible for evicting San Francisco tenants. It also makes it difficult for tenants to hold their landlords accountable.

We have several tools available for looking up landlord and speculator information. We have been using these to look up all LLCs responsible for Ellis Act evictions. We will make our research public shortly. If you want to look up information about your landlord/speculator, these are the tools that we have been using:

Como hemos establecido, muchos de los especuladores responsables de los desalojos bajo Ellis Act, se esconden bajo la anonimidad de Sociedades de Responsabilidad Limitada (LLC) y otras empresas de inversión de gran tamaño y operaciones complicadas y confusas. De hecho este anonimato les brinda impunidad a los individuos responsables del desalojamiento de los inquilinos de San Francisco. También lo hace muy complejo y difícil para los inquilinos desplazados hacer que los dueños de las propiedades asuman la responsabilidad del desalojamiento.

Hay varias herramientas disponibles para la búsqueda de información sobre los propietarios y/o los especuladores : Aquí les presentamos aquellas que hemos estado utilizando para buscar todas las sociedades de responsabilidad limitada (LLC) implicadas en los desalojos Ellis Act. Pronto publicaremos los resultados de nuestra investigación. Sin embargo, si desea buscar información sobre el dueño de su alojamiento o el especulador interesado, puede intentar con la susodicha lista.
