Upcoming Mediation Clinic

An Evening with the San Francisco Rent Board
Presented by Jennifer Rakowski

November 13

Here’s a chance to talk to an expert about landlord/tenant issues.

San Francisco’s rent ordinances and codes are complex. And housing-related disputes between landlords/tenants, tenants/tenants, and tenant/property managers are on the rise.
While you may not need to be an expert in these issues to be a great mediator, getting more familiar with these issues will strengthen your toolkit.

Join Jennifer Rakowsky, Senior Supervisor at the San Francisco Rent Board, to learn more about San Francisco’s rent codes and other City and State regulations that govern rental housing. She’ll also provide an overview of the services provided by the SF Rent Board.

You’ll learn about:

  • When the Rent Board can and cannot assist
  • Common rental housing disputes and ways to address them
  • The ins and outs of tenant buy-out agreements
  • Legal rent increases and security deposits
  • Eviction concerns
  • Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act and Ellis Act

This is a unique opportunity to discuss these issues with an expert. There will be time for Q&A.

Registration, Payment & Logistics

You can preregister and prepay for mediation clinics through the links in the 2018 CALENDAR above. 

Please be advised: We prefer that people preregister for our clinics.  While we don’t discourage walk-ins, all clinic participants are required to check in at the building security desk, and if your name is NOT on the registration roster, it could result in a delay or possibly inability to gain entry.

Though it rarely happens, we reserve the right to cancel a clinic. Should we cancel, registrants will receive a full refund. We also reserve the right to substitute trainers or presenters.  All other cancellations will be treated pursuant to the Refunds and Transfer Fees policy described below.

Refunds & Transfer Fees
If you cancel more than 24 hours before the clinic start time, there is a $7.50 cancellation fee. This fee will be waived one time if registration is transferred to a subsequent clinic that begins within twelve months of the training start date.  No refunds for cancellations 24 hours or less before the clinic start time.

All mediation clinics are held at:  JAMS, 2 Embarcadero Center, 15th Floor, San Francisco, 6-8 PM. [MAP]
