Many Nuances to Just-Cause Eviction Regulations

Dear Editor,

In real estate parlance month-to-month leases are called periodic tenancies and leases for a fixed term are called estates for years. The right to occupy a property for life is a life estate.

Concerns About Alameda’s Emergency Water Supply

Dear Editor,

I really have to chime in on concerns about Alameda’s emergency water supply. The Alameda Fire Department (AFD) is correct in stating that a Berkeley type solution would require too much manpower to utilize.

A Middle Ground Solution for Landlords and Tenants

A letter from Action Alameda News publisher David Howard.

It puzzles me that tenant activists should push for private enterprise to subsidize housing through the support of rent controls, and “just cause termination” laws.
