As a buyer of tenant occupied property, your rights of possession have been severely limited by the Board of Supervisors and the voters of San Francisco.
We as Realtors work to support property ownerâ€™s rights both locally and nationally. There is an important time coming up in San Francisco where we have the opportunity of changing the makeup of the Board of Supervisors and possibly roll back some of the ordinances they have passed in the past 8 years.
It is very important to acknowledge that we as Realtors and concerned citizens that we do not desire or support a casting off of society's responsibility to the elders and differently abled. We just don't think that it is right to put the burden of support for any specific group on the shoulders of any other specific group. In this case property owners are told to give support to the elders and differently abled. Society as a whole should shoulder this very important need.
We don't tell a grocer to sell milk below cost to someone that needs it and can't afford it. We give vouchers, food stamps or other support to the person so they can pay for it and the grocer is paid market price for the milk.

On November 7, 2006, voters approved Proposition H, which requires
landlords who pursue certain types of landlord-motivated evictions to pay
$4,500 in relocation assistance to each â€œEligible Tenant,â€ regardless of
age, who has lived in the unit for 12 months or more, up to a maximum of
$13,500 per unit. Landlords must pay an additional $3,000 to each Eligible
Tenant who is disabled or is 60 years of age or older, plus $3,000 to each
household with an Eligible Tenant who has at least one child under the
age of 18 years living in the unit. Beginning in March 2007, the required
relocation assistance will be inflation-adjusted annually.
In May 2006, the San Francisco Subdivision Code was amended to restrict
an ownerâ€™s ability to apply for condo conversion if there is a recent history
of evictions in the building. A building with two (2) or more evictions,
with notice dates on or after May 1, 2005, may be temporarily barred from
entering the lottery or applying for condo conversion for ten (10) years.
A building with an eviction of a protected tenant, with a notice date on or
after May 1, 2005, may be permanently barred from entering the lottery
or applying for condo conversion.
The San Francisco Superior Court Appellate Division recently ruled that
an owner must hold a minimum 25% â€“ not 50% â€“ ownership interest in
a property to pursue an Owner Move-In Eviction. The Court of Appeal
recently denied review of this decision in a published ruling.
Effective August 8, 2006, a San Francisco landlord must have just cause
