Section 11.100.050(a)(6) of the Fair Rent, Just Cause for Eviction, and Homeowner Protection Ordinance (Rent Ordinance) provides that a Landlord may seek to recover possession of a rental unit in good faith for the use and occupancy as a Primary Residence by the Landlord or the Landlord’s spouse, children, parents, or grandparents. Regulations clarifying the intent of this Section of the Rent Ordinance are contained in Chapter 10 of the Rent Board's adopted regulations, specifically in Regulations 1009 and 1010.
The table below contains forms and notices provided by the Rent Program for Tenant and Landlord use. Landlords and agents are encouraged to contact the Rent Program and/or seek legal advice prior to initiating the process to recover possession of a Rental Unit for owner or qualified relative occupancy to ensure all requirements are met, including, but not limited to, property enrollment, tenancy registration, and payment of the Rental Housing Fee. The Rent Program is unable to provide legal advice.
For your convenience, the Rent Program has provided sample forms where appropriate. Please note, the Rent Program does not guarantee the legal validity of "Sample" forms and notices, but rather provides these templates for informational purposes. Please consult with an attorney as to the legal sufficiency of any "Sample" forms and/or notices you choose to serve on a Tenant.
