How To Remove Substandard Status From A Property?
Application Submission for a Retroactive Permit
If the substandard notice pertains to the work that was done without obtaining necessary building permits, you will need to either undo it or obtain a retroactive building permit with the necessary.
No matter whether your property contains an unpermitted addition, conversion, or improvement, the odds of obtaining a permit post construction is high if minimum safety standards are adhered to.
From sketching out necessary drawings to submission of a permit application to LADBS and attending plans checks at review time to remedying any corrections, we can do everything to help you obtain a retroactive building permit.
Performing Remedial Work
If your house fails to pass the inspection the first time out, you will be provided with a list of items that need to be corrected. We will perform any required repairs and schedule a re-inspection.
If everything is fine, it shows that your structure meets the local building codes and the city will remove the substandard status from your property.
Received Violation Letter From LADBS
On the basis of a periodic inspection or a filed complaint, LADBS responds to the violation by serving the “Notice of Code Violation” that may seek remediation of the work in violation in a timely manner. If the owner fails to comply with the order within the time required by the order, the department would issue a “Notice and Order to Comply”, requiring the owner to take corrective action within a given period of time.
Should the owner continue to fail to respond to both the cited notices or abate the violation(s), the building department can serve them a “Substandard Order and Notice”. The letter discloses the conditions that make it substandard and may require the removal of the work in violation or the demolition of the substandard structure. If the department understands that the substandard conditions constitute a serious hazard to the life, health, or safety of the public or occupants, it may also declare it unsafe to occupy and order to vacate it.
