Ordinance

The Just Cause for Eviction Ordinance prohibits a property owner from terminating a tenancy without good or just cause. All units covered by the RAP are also covered under the Just Cause for Eviction Ordinance. However, if your unit is not covered under RAP, it may still be covered under this ordinance.

On November 8, 2016, Oakland voters passed Measure JJ, which further amended the new construction exemption under the Just Cause for Eviction Ordinance to buildings in which a certificate of occupancy was issued after December 31, 1995.
