Negotiating a Buy-out: For Landlords
Negotiating a buy-out for a tenant can be extremely difficult, and there are many traps for the inexperienced, or even experienced landlords unfamiliar with modern rules. For example, in San Francisco, a residential tenancy buyout agreement is invalid if the landlord didn’t serve a certain disclosure form on the tenant before starting negotiations. There is often free legal help available for tenants, and in places like San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, or Los Angeles, the regulations can change weekly.
