Under San Francisco’s rent control ordinance, a “landlord” to evict renters from a unit to make the unit available for a close relative of the landlord.  The ordinance defines “landlord” for this purpose as a natural person.  Here, the property was held in the name of a revocable living trust, not a natural person.  However, the decision holds that the “landlords” were the natural persons who acted as trustees of the trust that owned the property.  The trust, itself, could not hold title to or lease property.  The trustees held title on behalf of the trust,  Particularly, when as in this case, the trustees are also the settlors of a revocable trust, it is only sensible to treat them as the landlords for the purpose of the family move-in provision of the rent control ordinance.
