§ 1385.


The provisions of this Section and its application to certain properties may be affected by amendments creating Section 1344. Please consult Section 1344 in addition to this Section for Units subject to the Below Market Rate Condominium Conversion Program.

The Department of City Planning shall determine whether any units to be converted are part of the City’s low and moderate income housing stocks. If the Department of City Planning determines that any unit to be converted is part of the City’s low or moderate income housing stocks, then the price of the unit upon conversion shall not be such as to remove if effectively from said low or moderate income housing stocks and shall be no greater than 2.5 times the highest income level for low and moderate income households as defined in Section 1309(e) and (f), and as adjusted for household size according to the size of the dwelling, as set forth in Sections 1309(1) and (m). The resulting sales prices established pursuant to this formula may be increased consistent with any increases in the housing component of the “Bay Area Cost of Living Index, U.S. Dept. of Labor,” during the period between the most recent establishment of the above highest income levels and the date of commencement of sales. If the tenant does not exercise the contract right to purchase the unit which has been determined to be part of the low or moderate income housing stock, then the unit shall be made available exclusively for purchase by qualified households of low or moderate income on first-come, first-served basis for a period of not less than 12 months from the date of the decision by the tenant not to exercise the contract right to purchase or, if there is no tenant, from the date of issuance of the State Department of Real Estate Final Subdivision Public Report, at a price no greater than that allowed under the low and moderate income price guidelines set forth above. Priority, however, shall be given to low or moderate income households who can demonstrate that they had previously relocated from a dwelling in a building which has been approved for condominium conversion. The alternatives for low and moderate income occupancy set forth in Section 1341 shall not apply, except for those additional number of units which may be required pursuant to Section 1341(a) to be made available for rental or for purchase by households of low or moderate income. In cases where no low or moderate income household has purchased or contracted to purchase such unit within this 12-month period, after good-faith efforts by the subdivider, the subdivider may offer the unit to the general public with no price limitation.
