Proposition H Advisory #9 – 4/12/01
Additionally, the Board of Supervisors’ temporary moratorium ordinance (Administrative Code Section 37.8C) prohibiting the Rent Board staff from processing or approving landlord capital improvement petitions, unless they seek only certification of seismic retrofit work, went into effect on April 1st. While the Quigg Intervenors’ Complaints challenge the legality of the Moratorium, as well as the merits of Prop. H, no TRO or Motion for Preliminary Injunction against the Moratorium has been filed. Therefore, landlords may file petitions for certification of non-seismic capital improvement costs, but no action will be taken by the Rent Board on the petitions.
