"Bed Bug Notice Requirement. Beginning July 1, 2017, a landlord of a residential dwelling must provide a written notice to a prospective tenant prior to creating a new tenancy, stating: (a) general information about bed bug identification, behavior and biology, the need for cooperation for prevention and treatment, and the importance of prompt written reporting of suspected infestations to the landlord; and (b) the procedure to report suspected infestations to the landlord. Landlords must also provide this notice to existing tenants no later than January 1, 2018.
Tenant Internet Service Provider (ISP) Choice. In 2016, the Board of Supervisors passed legislation to ensure that competing ISPs have reasonable access to buildings to offer competing services, and to give tenants a choice over their ISP provider by prohibiting owners of buildings from interfering with their tenants’ choice of ISPs. Landlords must now allow ISPs access to their buildings to install additional hardware and wiring, including fiber-optic installations. Condominium Pesticide Treatment Notice Requirement.
Condominium Homeowner Associations applying pesticides (without using a licensed pest control operator) in common areas or a residence must post notice of the pesticide treatment and notify adjacent residents at least 48 hours in advance of the application. Owners of condominiums renting their units should make certain their HOA follows proper notice protocol."
