Report Examines the Experience of Renters During the Foreclosure Crisis

Tenants Together, a California-based organization, recently published a report on the staggering number of tenants in California struggling in the ongoing foreclosure crisis. According to this study, entitled "Hidden Impact: California Renters in the Foreclosure Crisis," approximately one third of residential units in foreclosure in California are rental units.

The report also includes a list of policy proposals that would better serve the tenant population during these troubling times including a call for stronger eviction protections and notification requirements.
