In 2008, the California State Fire Marshal determined that all multi-family residential buildings in the State of California consisting of three or more units shall be inspected annually by the local Fire Department throughout the state. It was determined through data received from the Los Angeles County Assessors’ Office that your property falls within this category. In an attempt to meet the requirement set forth by the State Fire Marshal, the Fire Department (FD) has developed, evaluated, and implemented a uniform and equitable plan to inspect all properties in its jurisdiction that fall within these criteria.
Inspections are being conducted on a systematic basis with consideration of the building density and potential for fire, life, and panic emergencies. The FD’s compliance plan has a minimum performance goal of completing all associated apartment housing annual inspections and follow-up compliance inspections each calendar year. You can anticipate that your property will be inspected beginning January 1st thru December 31st.
As the property owner/manager you are encouraged to immediately conduct a thorough walk-through of your property with a focus on identifying potential hazards and correcting them.
A routine fire and safety inspection will be conducted on your property. The inspector will focus on the building perimeter and common areas (open garage, stairwells, laundry areas, etc).
During a recent fire/life safety inspection of your property, our inspector found a fire code violation(s) needing your immediate attention and corrective action. You can anticipate a follow-up inspection 21 days from the date of inspection, to verify corrections on the item(s) identified on the NOV.
Yes, there is an annual inspection fee to property owner(s), which is assessed at the established City rate. If the property is found to be in violation, and the owner(s) fails to make the corrections during the allowed period, a re-inspection fee of $112.67 may be assessed by the City for each additional inspection thereafter until all corrections are completed.
If any violations are observed, you will receive a Notice of Violation from the FD. If your property is in full compliance you will not receive any notifications.
