It shall be unlawful for an owner to terminate the lease agreement of a tenant or otherwise retaliate against any tenant because that tenant complained to an agent of the city about nuisance activities or violations of law on the owner’s premises. Nothing herein shall preclude an owner from evicting a tenant or taking other lawful action due to a violation of law or lease provision by the tenant.
