Justin has studied different ways for an owner to limit the number of occupants in a rental unit, although over the years, San Francisco homeowners have made it more difficult to enforce restrictions on leases. Justin explained how to avoid “intergenerational rental rent” (when children grow up and try to pay rent in the apartment controlled by their parents) and the use of a new California law that regulates “third-party payments” as Estoppel`s tool to prevent a waiver from Costa Hawkins. San Francisco has passed a law sponsored by Supervisor Preston, which prohibits evictions for non-payment of rents for all rents due during Governor Newsom`s eviction moratorium, which is currently extended until September 30, 2020. Therefore, for rents due between March 16 and September 30 (as can be done), San Francisco homeowners cannot claim this rent (and unit) through an illegal detention action. The San Francisco Apartment Association (SFAA) has released its 2017 version of its residential rental agreement. Minor changes in form reflect recent legislative changes and proposals by SFAA members. Copies of the new agreement are available at the SFAA office or online at www.sfaa.org The SFAA housing rental agreement is considered the best standard rental form for use in San Francisco. It is checked annually by a team of blue stripes of lawyers and property managers to ensure that it is up to date with changes in the law.

Justin assessed a landlord`s obligations (making a habitable building available and preventing a disruption of a tenant`s right to a silent power supply) at a time when PG-E is using rolling power cuts to maintain the power grid. . Justin studied the difference between “late fees” and rent to explain what types of late fees are actually applicable and how a landlord would be advised to claim the share of the rent only if he served a three-day termination to pay or stop paying rent. He also explained how certain royalties can constitute “liquidated damage” that is not always enforceable.
. Unsurprisingly, several industry groups – the San Francisco Apartments Association, the San Francisco Association of Realtors, the Coalition for Better Housing and the Small Property Owners of San Francisco Institute – have filed lawsuits to overturn the settlement.
