Code Enforcement Relocation Program
In certain instances, the City of Oakland provides relocation payments and assistance to qualifying residential tenants who are displaced due to landlord code violations that prompt City Code Enforcement actions against the property in which they are renters (e.g. a residential building is "red-tagged" due to uninhabitable living conditions), or City or Redevelopment Agency actions.
The Code Enforcement Relocation Ordinance, codified in Chapter 15.60 of the Oakland Municipal Code, requires a property owner to pay relocation benefits to a residential tenant who must move because of the City's enforcement of housing and building codes. If the owner refuses to make the payment, the City may choose to make the payment to the displaced tenant and then place a lien on the property to recover these costs.
