The Allentown Tenant Association has asked the city of Allentown to implement a tenant relocation program similar to the one used in Oakland, CA. 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.
