The passage of Proposition 13, the property tax reform measure on June 6, 1978 ballot, has meant substantial property tax decreases to most landlords in the City and County of San Francisco. Through the use of a Renters Hot Line and public hearings, it has been found that a substantial number of landlords have increased the rents of tenants, and few have decreased rents, despite the passage of Proposition 13.
The Board of Supervisors will be considering the feasibility and desirability of measures designed to address the problems created by the unjustified spiraling rents in the City and County of San Francisco. Pending further study of the development and adoption of measures to address the problems created by the unjustified rent increases, it is necessary to temporarily roll back rents and, through June 14, 1979, to prohibit most rental increases on rental residential units within the City and County of San Francisco.
