    Please pass this amendment. It would help prevent completely avoidable, bad faith evictions over frivolous issues and help keep Oakland tenants housed.

    Please pass this amendment to require substantial damage to evict tenants for a breach of their lease. This will prevent Oakland tenants from being evicted by landlords over frivolous reasons.

    This amendment is a common-sense amendment that would help flatten the curve of evictions by preventing bad-faith landlords from evicting their tenants over frivolous issues. It would not affect decent landlords in the slightest.
