Join the Tenants Union
The San Francisco Tenants Union is a membership and donation supported organization. This means we rely almost entirely on the support of our membership base to continue to operate our drop-in clinic, continue our political advocacy, and to protect tenants’ rights in San Francisco.
By becoming a member of the Tenants Union you will:
- Receive our Tenants Rights Handbook (300+ pages of tenant law and strategies)
- Get access to telephone counseling. (Our phone counseling consists of a message line. You will be leaving a message and a counselor will call you back and may leave a message if we do not reach you. It may take several days or even a week or more to get back to you. We do not have the capacity to provide counseling by email unfortunately.)
- Have access to the support of our counseling team and information workshops held periodically
- Join the growing movement for tenants rights!
Some of the more common problems we help with are:
- Rent Increases
- Eviction Attempts (Owner-Move-Ins, Ellis Act Evictions, Etc.)
- Repairs and Maintenance
- Harassment by the Landlord (Invasion of Privacy, Threats, Etc.)
- Lease Questions (Roommates/Subletting, Pets, Parking, Storage, Backyard, Etc.)
- Security Deposits
- Rent Board Petitions
- Tenancies-in-Common/Condo Conversions
- Organizing Tenants in Your Building
Becoming a member will allow you to be a part of the long history of tenants and housing rights activism in San Francisco.
