Tenant in Occupancy Defined by the Commission - 6/5/01
The Rent Board Commission passed regulations on June 5, 2001 that defines who a tenant in occupancy is. The intent is to limit the jurisdiction of the Rent Ordinance jurisdiction to principal places of residences. Use of apartments for pied a terres or persons who move and assign their unit to others would lose the benefit of rent control. See Rules and Regulations Sections 1.21 and 5.10 for specific language.
