California tenants get free lawyers when they are evicted from a rental property, and now the left is demanding that this handout be expanded to illegal immigrants.

“The court system is very nebulous and discouraging for residents, who do not know how the court system works,” said Sandra Plascencia, a policy advocate with Leadership Counsel for Justice and Accountability, a local advocacy group. 

So the landlords have to fight against the government’s unlimited coffers. What effect does this have? The reputable businessmen will leave the rental business, and all you have left will be the shysters. This woman only makes $500 a week. In California. There aren’t many reputable landlords who will rent to someone making $25k a year in an expensive real estate market like California. After all, what kind of place can you realistically think you are going to rent for a woman, her child, and her elderly mother in a city whose average rent is $1.64 a month? A shitty one, that’s what. Still, forcing landlords to provide all of these benefits and forcing them to provide nicer rentals is merely going to ensure that women like the one in the article won’t be able to get a rental at any price.

Of course the commies in California have to lie and misdirect, because that is what the left does:

“If you steal a watermelon or a steak from a store and get arrested, you get a public defender to walk you through the whole entire process,” said Shara Thompson, the Central Valley regional coordinator with Tenants Together, a local advocacy group. “But when you’re being evicted for subletting — which is very minuscule — you don’t get any assistance.”

The big lie here is that stealing is a criminal offense where the legal adversary is the government and losing means perhaps going to jail. In an eviction your legal adversary is another citizen, and losing means having to move out of the rental property that you don’t own and aren’t paying for.

According to the California Apartment Association, rent increases above 10% annually are allowed on older buildings if landlords provide proper notice. Landlords can also evict people on the claim of major renovations to the home, which advocates say is another common tactic they believe is used to evict tenants. 

Then the article goes on to claim that landlords are being unfair because they won’t renovate properties, but then also takes landlords to task for asking tenants to move out so they can renovate properties.

I have said before that one of the things that communists ALWAYS do is portray property owners into some sort of evil monsters who prey on the poor. You will notice that the article is nearly ignoring the fact that wage earner for this illegal immigrant family of three is earning less than California’s minimum wage.

Commies gonna commie.

I think your observations are correct, but I also think the problem goes far beyond that. Having watched the housing/homeless crisis expand along with the arrivals of uncountable numbers of foreign invaders and the rise in squatting nationally, I am convinced that they system is being rigged to enable and encourage the dispossession of real property from the current owners by allowing the criminals to simply take it by force and giving them “legal” protection once they have accomplished this. Most of the states have squatter property transfer laws at present that allow them to take title if they are not removed in 15 or 20 years. I worry that they are trying to bypass the whole legal title step and just get as many owners as possible to abandon houses due to the legal obstacles to removing squatters. The criminals can then live there at no cost without paying rent or taxes until the property is destroyed. The possibility exists that this could apply to homeless camping on undeveloped land as well.

Any local area study should include identification of distressed and unoccupied homes. The long term ones are easy to spot.

You may recall there was a push in NY to ‘open your house to an illegal’.

It was my opinion that this was a poisonous offer. Once you’d had that illegal in your house residing for some arbitrary length of time (3 months, 6 months?)… you’d never be rid of them. They would claim tenancy and you’d be stuck with them unless you fought it out in court (good luck!).

If you think all of this is insanity let me jog your memory for a moment. Los Angeles paid for public defenders to represent the homeless when the city wanted to clean up the sidewalks and underpasses of all the crap so the homeless could argue their case for needing that filthy stained couch etc next to their cardboard box.
