- Property owner sues over housing law
By Rachel Swan - Monday Jul 17, 2017
Two owners of a tenancy-in-common have sued the city over a law the Board of Supervisors passed in 2013 that was designed to help owners convert TIC’s into condominiums, but with a provision that they offer a lifetime lease if there was a tenant in the unit.To Pakdel and Chegini’s attorney, Paul Utrecht, that’s a clear example of a municipal government seizing private property.Supervisor Mark Farrell and former Supervisor Scott Wiener, who originally sponsored the ordinance, saw it as a way to help small property owners who were jammed up in the city’s lottery system for condo conversions.Farrell and Wiener wanted to expedite conversions for more than 2,000 tenancies-in-common — residential buildings in which two or more people share ownership — that were on a waiting list.The two supervisors also required each tenancy-in-common owner to pay a $20,000 fee to the city’s affordable housing fund in exchange for the right to convert the property.Owners of tenancies-in-common can bypass the lifetime lease requirement by offering buyouts to the people renting their units.The plaintiffs seek more than $500,000 in damages and a declaratory judgment that would strike down the lease requirement, which they say violates federal and state laws.
