Did your landlord just raise your rent?
Right now your landlord is not allowed to raise your rent by more than 10%. If you have had a rent increase of more than 10%, contact the Rent Board anytime Monday through Friday between 9am-1pm and 1pm-4pm, (415) 252-4631.
Are you a renter having problems with your landlord?
Call the Tenants Together hotline at (888) 495 8020.
Are you unable to pay your rent and worried about eviction?
If you have lost income due to the COVID-19 epidemic and Shelter in Place orders and are unable to pay your rent, the city has passed a local eviction moratorium for non-payment. In order to be protected, you must notify your landlord within 30 days of your rent being due.
