Legislation by Supervisors Wiener and Christensen will allow for new in-law units — which are the most affordable type of non-subsidized housing and are subject to rent control if built within rent-controlled buildings — in unused spaces such as garages, large storage areas, and basements in Districts 8 and 3.
San Francisco, CA-- Today the Board of Supervisors passed two pieces of legislation authored by Supervisors Scott Wiener and Julie Christensen to allow the construction of new in-law units throughout Districts 8 and 3, which they represent on the Board of Supervisors. These two pieces of legislation follow on Supervisor Wiener’s Castro In-Law Unit legislation passed last year, as well as his recently passed legislation to allow for the addition of in-law units in apartment buildings undergoing seismic retrofit. New in-law units must be added within a building’s existing envelope, and new units added in rent-controlled buildings will be rent-controlled as well.
