San Francisco properties are subject to a wide variety of ordinances and regulations concerning tenant’s rights, rent controls and evictions, as well as zoning and use issues. Fortunately, we have landlord tenant attorneys and land use attorneys and advisors to help guide us though the ever-changing maze. Over the years, I have had dealings with many of the issues that come up on development of TIC units, unlawful detainer evictions and Owner-Move-In Evictions (OMI), the Ellis Act, and tenant buy outs.

The rental market in San Francisco is very strong and while offerings for investment properties and developmental opportunities can be lucrative, there are many pitfalls. Investors need local, reputable expertise in these areas to define the problems and provide for cost effective solutions. The following are some useful websites that may be helpful to you to navigate through this maze. This list is for informational purposes ONLY and not intended to be used as recommendations. Please call me direct for more specific details.
