According to SB608 A landlord can terminate a tenancy to make renovations where the unit will be unfit for occupancy during the rehab. Has anyone used this to bring rents to market rate, and get around the rent control cap? Would painting and new floors suffice as a qualifying reason to end a tenancy during non covid times?

(5)The landlord may terminate a month-to-month tenancy under subsection (3)(c)(B) of this section at any time, or may terminate a fixed term tenancy upon the expiration of the fixed term under subsection (4)(c) of this section, by giving the tenant notice in writing not less than 90 days prior to the date designated in the notice for the termination of the month-to-month tenancy or the specified ending date for the fixed term, whichever is later, if:

(a)The landlord intends to demolish the dwelling unit or convert the dwelling unit to a use other than residential use within a reasonable time;

(b)The landlord intends to undertake repairs or renovations to the dwelling unit within a reasonable time and:

(A)The premises is unsafe or unfit for occupancy; or

(B)The dwelling unit will be unsafe or unfit for occupancy during the repairs or renovations;
