San Francisco has rent control and eviction controls. There are many differences in what "rent control" may actually mean. I believe any property with a certificate of occupancy issued after June 13, 1979 may be exempt from the rent control ordinances, and eviction controls specifically for San Francisco. However, clarification on specifics with an attorney is in order. The date used was in effort to not deter new construction in San Francisco when rent control first started. Recently legislation was passed that involves these properties with tenants in occupancy and foreclosure.
Your question is best answered upon a specific situation with a specific property.
