Tenant Protections

San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors passed legislation in September that would make it more difficult to evict “problem tenants.” In a city where it is already notoriously difficult to evict tenants, the legislation seeks to curb the eviction of tenants for “frivolous evictions where the primary motivation is greed,” according to Supervisor Jane Kim, who introduced the measure.

The measure also lets tenants have as many roommates as they can fit under building and fire codes, regardless of lease restrictions.
