Request #19-721


This request relates to tracing the origin of and justifications for the owner occupancy exemption from Oakland's RAP and Just Cause Eviction Ordinance: (e.g, O.M.C. 8.22.350 - F)

Please provide all documentation of discussions, written or oral, that led to INSTITUTING the owner occupancy exemption.

The owner occupancy exemption to the Just Cause Eviction ordinance has recently been revoked, and revoking the exemption from the RAP is currently being discussed by City Council. This request is NOT for these recent discussions. Instead, it is for the original inclusion of the exemption in the O.M.C.

For example: OMC 8.22.010.F: "The City Council believes that the relationship between landlords and tenants in smaller owner-occupied rental properties involve special relationships between the landlord and the tenants residing in the same smaller property." I am looking for any documentation of how that believe came about.

Thank you!
