Eviction Controls In San Francisco: Landlords, Be Aware!

Eviction Controls In San Francisco: Landlords, Be Aware!
(NOTE: info as of September, 2021)
 
When we talk to our clients about how rent control might affect their property rights, we usually hear: “Wow, I had no idea!” Here’s some vital info for landlords and potential landlords to consider:
 
  • COVID-related eviction moratoriums were extended yet again. This is a date in flux for the time being, so always double-check the latest info. There are some exemptions for non-payment of rent, etc. It’s always possible that the Board of Supervisors will extend it again in SF, and/or that the state will extend. The Supreme Court ruled against the Federal eviction moratorium; that may or may not affect things on a local level.
  • Generally, if you move out of your property in SF and rent it out, it can be very difficult to move back in in the future.
Rent and eviction control in California was multi-layered before COVID, and now is even more complex. One thing for sure: You should understand the rules so you don’t accidentally break them. Your mid- and long-term plans for the property might not be feasible under rent control.
 
Before turning a property into a rental, or trying to regain possession of a current rental, an attorney consult is essential. Contact us anytime with questions or for an introduction to a seasoned attorney. We’re here to help!
