Working with the San Francisco Rent Board Reduces Your Risk

Your property management team at Gordon Property Management works closely with the San Francisco Rent Board and we follow the local and state legislation carefully to ensure you’re both protected and profitable.

The Rent Board takes a lot of the guesswork out of your rental increases by sharing exactly the amount you can raise your rent from year to year. They provide a lot of other valuable resources as well, helping us to help you maintain a compliant and comfortable home for your tenants. 

With help from the Rent Board, we’re able to reduce your liability and risk by understanding how much you can raise the rent, what the interest is on the security deposits we’ve collected for your property, and how additional requirements and referendums impact the management of your property.

Managing Your Rental Increases to Maximize Profitability

Rent control doesn’t mean you can’t increase your rent at all. 

The San Francisco Rent Board sets the amount that you can raise your rents every year, and it doesn’t go any higher than seven percent per year.

 You can petition to raise it more if you can document that there are increased operating expenses which make the increase necessary. You might also own a property that’s exempt from this law – however it would also have to be exempt from the statewide rent control law as well. 

At Gordon Property Management, we will analyze the market, take a close look at your competitors, and make a recommendation for how much you should raise the rent at least renewal time. We typically negotiate successfully with your tenants, and our retention rates are high. 

We can help you when you’re not sure how to manage rent control with your own San Francisco investment. If you’re not already working with us, get in touch and we can tell you:

We've experienced great success in the last year with the management of our San Francisco Parkside District rental home by Gordon Property Management. Our tenant of 4 years moved out late October and the GPM team assessed what needed to be done in preparation for a new tenant, accomplished it, photographed the property, prepared the description, went live and from a range of rental applicants, Tierney Solorio of GPM brought us our new, qualified tenant moving in 12/15. We appreciate the great customer communication & services that Tierney, and the GPM team are providing and we are grateful to have our property managed by them!
