an exciting new educational & legal advocacy organization launched by Small Property Owners of San FranciscoWe recognize that it's tough being a small property owner in San Francisco, and that San Francisco has more obstacles to ownership and profitability than most other cities. We recognize that our properties are our security, and that in order to be successful in our goals we must work together.It is the mission of the non-profit SPOSF INSTITUTE to provide owners of small rental properties in San Francisco with the tools and information necessary to conduct business successfully in this difficult climate. Through our educational programs, publications, and workshops we seek to help our members better understand their rights and obligations, how to work constructively with city and state officials, and how to deal effectively with their tenants. Through legal advocacy, we seek to protect the rights of small property owners against unfair and burdensome regulations. Recent court decisions and the defeat of rent control measures in a number of US cities give us good reason to be hopeful.Because the SPOSF INSTITUTE is a new organization, we are just beginning to put our programs in place. Please check back regularly to stay in touch with our progress and to learn about our programs.
