Need to evict a tenant in San Francisco? We are here to help! When you evict a tenant in San Francisco for any reason other than for non-payment of rent, if the property is subject to rent control, you must file a copy of the San Francisco tenant termination notice with the rent stabilization board no more than 10 days after serving the tenant with the notice to terminate tenancy.
Failure to file a copy of the San Francisco eviction notice with the rent board may cause the landlord to lose the San Francisco eviction case.
San Francisco landlords may evict tenants for many reasons. One of the most common reasons for evicting a San Francisco tenant is when the tenant stops paying the rent. If evicting the San Francisco tenant for non-payment of rent, no notice needs to be filed with the rent control board. However, San Francisco evictions based on any other reason other than for non-payment of rent require that the landlord file a copy of the termination notice with the rent control board. Depending on the reason for the San Francisco eviction, relocation assistance (paying the tenant to move) might be required.
