Curbed.com reports an increasing number of Ellis Act evictions in Los Angeles, as landlords seek to take advantage of higher property values.

While only pockets of Los Angeles County have rent controlled rental units, the number of Ellis withdrawals dwarfs those of San Francisco, which saw 216 Ellis Act terminations in 2013 and 113 in 2014, to Los Angeles’ 308 in 2013 and 725 in 2014.
