San Francisco Woman, 99, Again Faces Eviction

Court order says she failed to pay landlord's $155K attorney bill as a condition of initial eviction order being dropped


A 99-year-old San Francisco woman who avoided being evicted from her Western Addition apartment in April is now being ordered to pay the landlord's attorney fees or face eviction after all, according to a document filed Wednesday in San Francisco Superior Court.

Iris Canada, who has lived in the neighborhood since the 1950s, was threatened with eviction in April. The landlord eventually agreed not to evict her but on the condition she pay the landlord's attorney fees, which amount to about $155,000, by July 25, the court order said.

Canada did not pay the full amount by the required date and now faces eviction once again.

Canada was granted a lifetime estate lease on her apartment, which allows her to live in the 6-unit building at 670 Page St. until her death.
