In-Law Law

A proposal approved on Tuesday will allow the construction of new in-law units across neighborhoods like the Castro, Noe Valley, Chinatown, North Beach, and Russian Hill. The Planning Department estimates that there will be more than 2,500 new units created through the conversion of storage areas or garages, although there is the potential to add more than 11,000 in-law units across those two districts. Supervisor Jane Kim has proposed adding restrictions to the newly-passed law the include banning short-term rentals in in-laws and disallowing in-law construction in buildings where an Ellis Act eviction occurred over the past ten years.
