Housing Inspection Program

Some older neighborhoods have substandard housing which has lessened the quality of life in those neighborhoods. To address this, the City is establishing a quadrennial rental housing inspection program to identify and address rental properties that have code violations and need rehabilitation. This program will allow the City to establish a standard and a process to inspect housing, improve housing, preserve neighborhoods, and stimulate private reinvestment to rehabilitate structures where deferred maintenance has led to severely substandard conditions. Property owners will benefit by a receipt of a certificate and an award system to recognize well-maintained properties, which property owners could then use to market and attract quality tenants; access to the San Bernardino County Crime Free Multi-Family Housing program; landlord/tenant educational opportunities in conjunction with Inland Mediation; and for comparative purposes access to City-sponsored Rehabilitation Loans.
