Regulation 503 Amended

On June 17, 2013, the Berkeley Rent Stabilization Board, by way of a second reading, amended Regulation 503 [Definition of Principal Residence] by adding sections (A) and (B) to clarify the definition of a “person” for the purposes of identifying which entities can claim principal residence in a unit.

Regulation 503 now makes clear that “person” is limited to a “natural person” and that a landlord may not claim an exemption pursuant to Sections 5(f) or 5(g) of the Ordinance unless the landlord occupies a unit on the property as his/her principal residence at the time the landlord asserts or claims the exemption.
