The Residential Hotel Unit Conversion and Demolition Ordinance (HCO), Chapter 41 of the San Francisco Administrative Code, was first adopted on June 26, 1981, by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.
The purpose of this ordinance is to preserve affordable housing by preventing the loss of residential hotel units through conversion or demolition, and to prevent the displacement of low income, elderly, and disabled persons.
