Intent to Evict via Ellis Act ~ by Year ~ From Jan 2000 to Today

These are “NOTICE OF CONSTRAINTS ON REAL PROPERTY” records posted by City Recorder, which is required prior to an Ellis Act Eviction.
They were downloaded recently from CRIIS website. They are not necessarily complete.
They did not necessarily end in an eviction. They might have ended in a ‘buy-out’.
There might be errors…
(some months are empty–might be missing, or nothing was filed that month; will check (and fix) when possible)

Click on link per file for that year.
In the file…
Click on links for CRIIS website owner, records info
Click on APN number (####?-###?) for link to SF Planning Property Map website (from there you can click a link to see all CRIIS records for that property)
*note: if SF Planning site offers multiple APNs, APN listed here has probably been sub-divided
*note: some CRIIS links may show more names than listed here; these are not necessarily involved in intent to evict notice
