Landlords in San Francisco should be aware of the fact that most
residential buildings which were built before June 1979, are controlled by
San Francisco Rent Ordinance which prohibits illegal rent increases,
regulates
interest on deposit; regulates utility, capital improvement and
operation and maintenance pass-through; and regulates evictions
proceedings.
