|One Bush Street (Market & Bush) in SF|
Energized by the recent rent rollback for 500+ tenants in 34 buildings throughout SF, Veritas / Greentree Property Management / RentSFNow tenants are rallying again to #RollbackRent at more buildings across SF. Join us!
Our immediate demands of Veritas are:
- Cancelation of pending capital improvement passthroughs
- Rollback of ALL capital improvement passthroughs already impacting tenants
- Rollback of ALL operations & maintenance rent increases ruled on prior to last year's change in the law
Additionally, we are putting out a call to the Board of Supervisors for a citywide rent freeze on all rent-controlled apartments: No rent increases on rent-controlled apartments until the BOS considers deep policy change on a fair rate of affordability to complement a landlord's expectation for a fair rate of return. If a landlord can demonstrate financial hardship, then an annual rent increase should be granted.
With the Rent Board Commission considering new rules requiring landlords to disclose their profits to receive operations & maintenance rent increases, and with members of the BOS soon holding a public hearing on passthroughs, we demand a citywide rent freeze on rent-controlled apartments to preserve this essential housing stock while we consider new policies.
