Soft Story Ordinance

The Devincenti-Lagomarsino team would like to remind the building owners of San Francisco to check if your properties are on the Preliminary Soft Story List, which can be found below. The City of San Francisco has signed into law a program for the mandatory retrofit for all wood frame buildings permitted for construction prior to January 1, 1978 with two or more stories over a soft or weak story that contain five or more dwelling units.

For a complete analysis on how the Soft Story ordinance may impact your property please call James Devincenti or Brad Lagomarsino.
