Remodel Much? Important “Home Demolition Legislation” Information

Remodel Much? Important “Home Demolition Legislation” Information

Generally, not the ones to get all political, but this is fairly important, so we thought you should know.

A message from our San Francisco Association of Realtors…

City Hall has proposed Home Demolition Legislation which will take away a homeowner’s right to make basic repairs and renovations to their home!
The Home Demolition Legislation (File No. 181216) will create incredibly restrictive construction requirements and cost-prohibitive bureaucratic hurdles, preventing homeowners from making several renovation and repair projects that are critical to giving families a livable home in San Francisco.
The Home Demolition Legislation is coming to the San Francisco Planning Commission this Thursday, June 20. 
Legislation Details
The Home Demolition Legislation impacts several renovation and repair projects that are critical to giving families a livable home in San Francisco. The Legislation: 
  • Requires homeowners looking to make simple repairs, such as dry rot removal, to obtain Conditional Use authorization from the Board of Supervisors – adding thousands of dollars and months of time to critical projects.
  • Requires most repair and renovation projects that remove walls or floors to go before the Board of Supervisors for Conditional Use authorization, even if the removals are temporary.
  • Significantly increases the requirements the Board of Supervisors will enforce on homes applying for Conditional Use authorization – preventing many renovation and repair projects from being approved at all.
The Home Demolition Legislation is coming to the San Francisco Planning Commission this Thursday, June 20. Sign our petition now and tell the San Francisco Planning Commissioners to protect a homeowner’s right to repair and renovate their home.
If you are able to make it to the San Francisco Planning Commission, the hearing is this Thursday, June 20, 10 a.m. at San Francisco City Hall, Room 400.
