With the stroke of Mayor London Breed’s pen, unsuspecting rental property owners in San Francisco may be exposed to a new set of just cause eviction rules from which they are currently insulated.

Although AB-1482 carves out an exemption for buildings erected within the past 15 years, this doesn’t cut the mustard for the Board of Supervisors, who have striven for a uniform standard of just cause eviction rules citywide.

If signed by the Mayor, an estimated 35,000 rental units will be affected. We take on the subject and offer some takeaways here. 

On another note, we applaud the San Francisco Task Force on Compulsive Hoarding for publishing a comprehensive report on an important issue that takes a toll on many individuals, rental property owners, and numerous health and safety departments and agencies.

You can access its findings and recommendations on our updated page on this subject .

Finally, we thank the many participants in our upcoming webinar on statewide rent caps and eviction controls and invite you to register here if you haven't already done so.
Report provides context and offers compassionate solutions for a vexing problem owners and property managers face.

When untidiness and clutter rise to the level of hoarding, the rental property industry should proceed with caution in addressing this affliction, as it is categorized as a disability that demands "reasonable accommodations" under fair housing laws.

A blue ribbon task force gives a glimpse into this illness and issues guidance.
