Hundreds of organizers gathered at noon on January 28, 2013, on the Eastern steps of San Francisco City Hall to demand an end to proposed legislation from Supervisor Mark Farrell and Supervisor Scott Wiener that threatens the rental market and rent control laws in San Francisco. The measure would lift the standing annual limit on TIC condo conversions to permit 2,000 more conversions, increasing price pressure on real estate, effective pushing more rental units out of the housing market in San Francisco.
Speakers and/or organizers from the San Francisco Tenants Union, Housing Rights Committee of San Francisco, San Francisco Community Tenants Association, Gray Panthers, AIDS Housing Alliance, Sierra Club of San Francisco, Senior and Disability Action, Occupy Bernal, Occupy Noe, and the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE), and many other organizations and individuals attended the press conference and rally, then entered City Hall for a Board of Supervisors Land Use Committee hearing to provide public comment on the proposed measure.
Post-Foreclosure Home Auction Fraud Alert: Watch Prometheus: Real Estate Attorney Aly Ebrahimzadeh, Esq. speak with KTVU TV about the June 7, 2012 Department Of Justice crackdown on the Home Auction Fraud Conspiracy in Oakland and San Ramon, California.
“Every auctioneer and auction company shall maintain a bond issued by a surety company admitted to do business in this state. The principal sum of the bond shall be twenty thousand dollars ($20,000). A copy of the bond shall be filed with the Secretary of State,” from California Law on Auctioneers and Auction Companies.
Does this mean that any auctions performed by any auctioneer not bonded for $20,000 with the Secretary of State of California is not a legal auction?
Thanks to Hydrogene for bringing this to our attention.
