Justin explained how to avoid the « intergenerational lease » (when children grow up and try to pay rent in the apartment controlled by their parents) as well as the use of a new California law that regulates « payments to third parties » as an instrument to avoid Costa Hawkins` waiver.

Justin has studied different ways for a landlord to limit the number of occupants in a rental unit, although over the years, San Francisco has made it harder for landlords to impose restrictions in rental agreements. San Francisco has passed a law sponsored by Supervisor Preston that prohibits evictions for non-payment of rent for all rents due during Governor Newsom`s eviction moratorium, which is currently extended until September 30, 2020. As a result, San Francisco landlords cannot recover this rent (and the unit) through an illegal action in detention for rents due between the initial march 16 order and September 30 (following the lawsuit). The San Francisco Apartment Association (SFAA) has released its 2017 version of its residential lease agreement. The minor changes to the form reflect recent legislative changes as well as proposals from SFAA members. Copies of the new contract are available at the SFAA office or online under www.sfaa.org The SFAA Residential Tenancy Agreement is considered the best standard rental form for use in San Francisco. It is audited annually by a Blue Ribbon team of lawyers and administrators to ensure it is up to date with legislative changes. CAA members have access to our entire forms library.
