Oppose Berkeley's TOPA Ordinance!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


The Berkeley City Council plans to introduce a scheme designed to seize your private property. It's outrageous and it's happening NOW!

The "Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act" is eminent domain in disguise. Stop the Berkeley City Council from stealing your property rights, lowering home values and hurting Berkeley's future.

ATTENTION ALL BERKELEY RENTAL PROPERTY OWNERS, HOMEOWNERS, FUTURE OWNERS AND CONCERNED RESIDENTS.

Be aware of the extreme legislation your elected officials want to push forward:

Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin has recently announced the draconian Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act (TOPA). 

Proponents say TOPA is another "tool" to protect low-income tenants from displacement by granting them first right of refusal to negotiate a purchase with the owner, prior to the property hitting the open market! However, this if far from the truth.

Enacting TOPA would be the biggest violation of private property rights Berkeley has ever seen. Not only does the Berkeley City Council and nonprofit special interests want to control rents, they want to take it one step further by controlling how owners are able to sell their property, to whom they can sell, and control the price th owners can sell it for!
