Webinar: Understanding How Neighborhoods Affect Landlord Behavior 101

June 22, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

| $45

*Please note SFCDC is not the organizer of this event

Whether an owner will invest in maintaining a rental property is largely influenced by the property market in that neighborhood. The most effective rental regulation strategies adjust their approaches to enforcement based on these varying conditions. This webinar helps practitioners understand how to move toward a market-informed approach to rental enforcement in order to increase the stock of safe, well-maintained rental housing in all neighborhoods. Participants will learn how to analyze neighborhood-by-neighborhood property market conditions. They’ll then look at the relationship between those conditions and landlord behavior. Examples of tailored, market-informed rental enforcement from other cities will clarify how this approach can work in practice. Participants will learn how enforcement can be tailored based on, for example, the presence of problem landlords and of responsible landlords, complaint frequencies, or the concentration of student housing. All options will be appropriate for cities working with a tight or shrinking budget; in fact, the overall approach is intended to help cities maximize resource efficiency while also remaining effective and equitable.
