Effective May 1, 2018, Oakland’s Tenant Move Out Agreement Ordinance took effect governing the terms that a Landlord must comply with when offering tenants compensation (often referred to as “Cash for Keys”) to vacate their rental unit.
Pursuant to the new law the Landlord must do the following:
1) Provide a Pre-Move Out Negotiation Disclosure Form to the tenant prior to entering into negotiations for move out.
2) File a Pre-Move Out Disclosure Certification Form with the Oakland Rent Board prior to entering into negotiations for move out, and
3) File the executed Move Out Agreement with the Oakland Rent Board within 45 days of signing the agreement.
To access the Pre-Move Out Negotiation Disclosure Form and the Pre-Move Disclosure Certification Form, visit the City of Oakland website located at:
