I agree with the other answers here - haven't heard of a need for a home inspection for rentals. That being said, many landlords will ask that you do a walk-through with them to make note of anything that is in need of repair, or any existing damage. This just keeps a record to help determine the amount of security deposit you get back when you move out, if any additional damage exists at the end of the lease.

I have never heard of that and I don't believe it is mandatory in SF. IF you want to check the rules and regulations specific to SF, take a look here: http://www.sfrb.org/index.aspx?page=4
