Increased Relocation Payment Amounts in Effect on 3/1/07


Pursuant to Rent Ordinance section 37.9A(e)(3)(D) for Ellis evictions and section 37.9C(e)(3) for evictions forowner/relative move-in (OMI), demolition, temporary capital improvement work, and substantial rehabilitation work, required relocation payments are increased annually on March 1 due to inflation. The increase is calculated on the rate of increase in the "rent of primary residence" expenditure category of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for All Urban Consumers in the San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose Region for the preceding calendar year. The rate increased from 263.0 for calendar year 2005 to 267.0 for calendar year 2006, or 1.521%. Accordingly, for Ellis notices of intent filed with the Board from March 1, 2007 through February 29, 2008 and for eviction notices for OMI, demolition, temporary capital improvement work, or substantial rehabilitation work served on tenants from March 1, 2007 through February 29, 2008, the following relocation amounts are due:

Ellis evictions: $4,571.92 per tenant with a cap of $13, 715.75 per unit, with an additional $3,047.94 for each elderly (62 years or older) or disabled (per California Government Code section 12955.3) tenant.
