The Tenants Union operates a drop-in counseling clinic for members and non-members. Since the Tenants Union is a membership supported organization, we ask that new tenants become members of the Tenants Union, which provides a copy of our Tenants Rights Handbook and access to phone counseling, or we ask that you make a donation when you come in (no one is turned away for lack of funds).
Hours for the clinic include daytime, evening and weekend hours. Since the actual hours can vary each week, tenants should check our drop in schedule or call 415-282-6622 for the schedule. Counselors are trained to answer virtually any question regarding your rights as a tenant or sub-tenant. Please bring in all your paperwork (notices, letters, rental agreement, etc.).
- If you are a master tenant seeking help in evicting a sub-tenant, we can not provide you with counseling. We suggest you contact the Rent Board.
- If you have been served with a “Summons & Complaint For Unlawful Detainer,” we will not be able to help. Bring it and all your paperwork to the Eviction Defense Collaborative, 995 Market St., Suite 1200 (at 6th Street).
