Tenants’ Union Set for Sunday Picketing of TIC Open House

by on July 8, 2005

The Tenants Union will be picketing a house tomorrow where all the tenants were evicted to so the units could be sold as Tenancies in Commons (TICs). Chetcuti & Associates, the company involved in this particular building, have evicted more than 6 people in the Mission in the past year. The picket will occur Sunday, July 10, 2 p.m. at 838 Potrero St., which is between 20th and 21st Streets. The picket is part of an ongoing, largely successful campaign to educate potential homebuyers of the nefarious history of the TIC homes they are considering purchasing, as well as the potential legal battles they face in converting their home to a condo should they choose to purchase the unit.
