A tenant can have a tenant association representative present during the meetings with the landlord. Landlords must remain in attendance at meetings of the full tenant association until the end of the meeting (up to two hours). Additional clarifying definitions have been added.
The Board of Supervisors and Mayor of San Francisco recently passed legislation that gives tenants enhanced rights to organize within their buildings (informally referred to as the “Tenant Right-To-Organize legislation” or "Tenant-At-Home Ordinance").
