Re: “Rising Rents and Evictions in Alameda Get Attention of City Council

One of the things that Alameda tenants need to do is to study what the effects of rent control has done to rents in cities that have pasted rent control. I purchased a triplex in Alameda about the same time that Oakland passed rent control and the local landlord group meetings went from an attendance of 20 to 400 landlords. Most were like myself, owners of less then 10 units with hands on property management. Their main concern? All of their units were way below the rents charged at Multiplex units own by faceless investors. What advice did we get? Raise your rents now!! This may be the last time you will have an unregulated opportunity. Rents now in Oakland rival San Francisco rents. Unfortunatly rents are going up all over the Bay Area. What has happened to some of the tenants in Alameda is heartbreaking, but at the heart of the problem are investors that were not at the meeting last night. I don't even think they live here. Most of the landlords were like myself only own one property, we take pride in ownership, we know our tenants, we like each other and are rents are reasonable. The charge that we "packed the chambers" by one of the angry tenants I passed (left after things got ugly) is naive at best. When an issue is brought before the council you arrive early, fill in a speaker's request to speak then wait for your turn to present. You don't arrive at the time the meetiing starts, complain you don't have a seat, then try to storm the chambers because someone said something you don't agree with.
