Relocation Payments for Ellis Evictions Required for all Authorized Occupants Regardless of Age

Effective July 23, 2017, Rent Ordinance Section 37.9A(e)(3) was amended to require a landlord seeking an eviction under the Ellis Act to pay relocation benefits to each authorized occupant of the rental unit, including minor children and subtenants. The definition of "Eligible Tenant" for Ellis relocation payments is now the same as for other non-fault evictions specified in Ordinance Section 37.9C, except that there is no 12-month residency requirement for tenants being evicted under the Ellis Act.
