Increased Ellis Relocation Payments Ordinance – Update #1 (6/19/15)

As part of the amendment to Ordinance Section 37.9A, effective June 14, 2015, the Controller is required to establish a San Francisco Rental Payment Differential Report and provide it to the Rent Board for publication. The Controller’s Reports for 2014 and 2015 are here for informational purposes only. The amended Ordinance also authorizes the Rent Board to prepare and make available a Tenant Declaration form. The Declaration form is here for informational purposes only.

It is the City’s position that the amendment to Section 37.9A is covered by the previous injunction issued by the Court in Levin v. CCSF (United States District Court Case No. 3:14-ev-03352-CRB), and therefore the City is not enforcing the amended ordinance until permitted to do so by the Court. The City has appealed the District Court’s order to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The Rent Board will provide further updates on the status of the amended Ordinance as they are available.
