Ellis Eviction Relocations Benefits

Tenants forced to relocate due to an Ellis eviction are entitled to relocation benefits. In February of 2006, the California Court of Appeals upheld the legality of relocation benefits adopted by the San Francisco Board of supervisors in 2005. The relocation benefits are $4500 per tenant with a maximum of $13,500 per household. There is an additional benefit of $3000 per tenant when the tenant is a senior or disabled.
