Having been denied by a San Francisco Superior Court Judge last week, the San Francisco Apartment Association, San Francisco Association of Realtors, Coalition for Better Housing, and Small Property Owners of San Francisco Institute have just filed an appeal of the judge’s ruling that upheld San Francisco’s COVID-19 Tenant Protection Ordinance (No. 93-20) which was enacted back in June.
While Ordinance No. 93-20 does not forgive any past due rents or tenant obligations, nor prohibit a landlord from seeking to collect via a civil claim or collection agency once the City’s moratorium period, which was recently extended, has ended, it does remove the threat of eviction due to unpaid rents accumulated during the pandemic and prohibits the charging of any associated late fees and/or interest.
We’ll keep you posted and plugged-in.
