New ordinance targets landlords dubbed the “worst of the worst”


San Mateo, California — At its meeting on Tuesday, February 19, the City Council of San Mateo will consider adoption of an ordinance designed to ensure habitability of San Mateo apartments and to make provision for tenants who are forced to move as a result of extreme conditions threatening their health and safety. The idea for this ordinance was brought to the city by One San Mateo, a community group advocating for affordable housing solutions and a more fair and inclusive San Mateo.

San Mateo moves closer to relocation assistance for tenants displaced from substandard properties


In an effort to support at-risk tenants who find themselves in unsafe housing, San Mateo city officials are shaping an ordinance aimed at requiring landlords who don’t properly maintain their units to pay for the relocation costs of affected tenants.
Among the measures councilmembers considered at their Tuesday meeting was requiring landlords whose tenants are temporarily displaced by substandard living conditions to provide another unit or hotel room within a 10-mile radius. They also considered mandating those landlords whose tenants are permanently displaced provide them with three months of fair-market rent.
