Rent Board Issues Proposed Regulations Implementing "Family Protection Act" Giving Tenants The Right To Move In Spouses, Domestic Partners and Immediate Family Members

Rent Board Hearing March 29, 6:30 PM, 25 Van Ness (Lower Level)

Proposed Regulations Will Give Tenants Decrease In Rent If Landlord Blocks Move In

The Rent Board will hold a hearing on proposed regulations implementing the recently enacted Family Protection Act, which allows tenants to move in their spouse, domestic partner or immediate family members. The proposed regulations will make it easier for tenants to do this without having to resort to defending themselves in an eviction action in court by providing that a landlord's refusal to allow the move in will warrant a decrease in rent. Alternatively, tenants could petition the Rent Board for a declaratory judgment as to whether or not the move in is allowed under the law. The legislation broadly allows such move-ins, giving an unconditional right to move in spouses, registered domestic partners, or immediate family members, even when the lease would otherwise prohibit such a move in.
