The San Francisco Board of Supervisors on June 27 passed legislation reforming the City’s Owner Move-In (OMI) law that includes nonprofit right to sue a landlord who illegally evicts a tenant for OMI and landlord requirements to notify the Rent Board that he/she has moved in. The reforms were pushed by the Tenants Union with support from a variety of local tenants rights organizations, including Housing Rights Committee. Though initially there were two pieces of legislation, tenants worked closely with the office of Supervisor Aaron Peskin and felt that his contained real enforcement over the one introduced by Supervisor Mark Farrell. For more info, see info on Evictions page under OMI.
