San Francisco is notorious for its complex rental laws, and our agents are experts on the local market. Rent and eviction control make this market unique, and our agents are always up to date on the latest information. The San Francisco Rent Board regulates rent and eviction control, which is described as the following:
“The San Francisco Rent Ordinance (SF Administrative Code, Chapter 37) was enacted effective June 13, 1979 by the Board Of Supervisors and signed by the Mayor as emergency legislation to alleviate the city’s housing crisis. The Ordinance created the Residential Rent Stabilization and Arbitration Board “in order to safeguard tenants from excessive rent increases and, at the same time, to assure landlords fair and adequate rents consistent with Federal Anti-Inflation Guidelines.”
As an agency which rents many rent controlled apartments, we know the complexities of rent control can be difficult to keep up with as a landlord. This is why we created tools for San Francisco landlords like our security deposit calculator and constantly train our team to be aware of posted guidelines.
