City Code Violations

City Code Violations


The cities in the state of California are committed to working with its citizens in a joint effort to preserve and protect our residential neighborhoods. Appropriate maintenance of properties and neighborhoods is for the well being of all the citizens and the communities.

Most cities have common guidelines or ordinances those properties owners must follow. Safety is the first concern. The property must not have an accumulation of debris or junk, any hazardous material, overgrown vegetation, dried shrubs that can lead to a fire or be a home to animals and insects. If a property violates these standards it would be considered a safety hazard towards the community. Therefore, the property has the risk of being cited. Once a property is cited the property owner will have a certain amount of time to correct the issue and bring the property up to the community standards. If the citation is not corrected in a timely manner, the city may hire a company to clean up the property. The city may then place a fine or sanction, on the title of the property.

In most cases – there are two ways for the city to cite a property. One is a report from a neighbor and the other is a city inspector doing a routine inspection. Some cities are now employing systematic checks to find substandard properties, violations, and nuisance properties.

If your property gets cited it is best to take care of the matter as soon as possible. So when the inspector re inspects the property, the property can be cleared of the citation.

Hauling in Los Angeles has the expertise and equipment needed to keep properties in safe and marketable condition. Our cleanup crews are regularly hired by all the major banks to keep their assets clean of any debris, junk, overgrown shrubs and any other miscellaneous items that are dumped on their properties.

Most of our jobs can be completed within 24 hours of receiving an order.
