Sec. 21-17-3. Findings required for approval.

The city council shall not approve a final map for a subdivision to be created from the conversion of residential real property into a condominium project, a community apartment project, or a stock cooperative project unless it finds all of the following: (1) Each of the tenants of the proposed condominium, community apartment project or stock cooperative project has received, pursuant to Section 21-17-2(b), written notification of intention to convert at least sixty days prior to the filing of a tentative map pursuant to Section 66452 of the Subdivision Map Act. There shall be a further finding that each such tenant, and each person applying for the rental of a unit in such residential real property has, or will have, received all applicable notices and rights now or hereafter required by this article or the Subdivision Map Act. In addition, a finding shall be made that each tenant has received ten days’ written notification that an application for a public report will be, or has been, submitted to the Department of Real Estate, and that such report will be available on request. The written notices to tenants required by this section shall be deemed satisfied if such notices comply with the legal requirements for service by mail.
(2) Each of the tenants of the proposed condominium, community apartment project or stock cooperative project has been, or will be, given written notification within ten days of approval of a final map for the proposed conversion.
(3) Each of the tenants of the proposed condominium, community apartment project or stock cooperative project has been, or will be, given one hundred eighty days’ written notice of intention to convert prior to termination of tenancy due to the conversion or proposed conversion. The provisions of this subsection shall not alter or abridge the rights or obligations of the parties in performance of their covenants, including, but not limited to, the provision of services, payment of rent or obligations imposed by Sections 1941, 1941.1 and 1941.2 of the Civil Code.
(4) Each of the tenants of the proposed condominium, community apartment project or stock cooperative project has been, or will be, given notice of an exclusive right to contract for the purchase of his or her respective unit upon the same terms and conditions that such unit will be initially offered to the general public or terms more favorable to the tenant. The right shall run for a period of not less than ninety days from the date of issuance of the subdivision public report pursuant to Section 11018.2 of the Business and Professions Code, unless the tenant gives prior written notice of his or her intention not to exercise the right.
