Is your home, income property, or commercial establishment in code violation? Are you sure your smoke detectors, safety bars, and signage are properly in place?

Normally your number would come up approximately every two years (it’s statistics), but lately new construction is slow, which makes this the perfect time for the Los Angeles, West Hollywood, and Beverly Hills Departments Of Building & Safety to catch up on back code violations that may have been sliding under the radar…were they inclined to do so.

Bear in mind that when it comes to correcting building and safety violations, these cities accept permits from licensed contractors only. Not only are we licensed, but we are bonded, insured up to $2M, and capable of correcting any and all violations – from general upkeep and maintenance (flooring, walls, dry rot) to specific issues (ground fault circuit interruptor, aka GFCI). When you hire us, you get the benefit of hiring multiple trades without the hassle of hiring multiple contractors.

 

A leak in your tenants bathroom ceiling is a housing violation. Take care of it promptly and don't wait for your tenant to call the Housing Department on you, it will cost you much more if the list that the City comes up with becomes larger than only that leak.

The most common violations are cracking paint that needs to be patched and repainted, missing or improperly installed smoke detectors, leaky fixtures, damaged or inoperable windows and doors, damaged flooring or other broken fixtures. But many other items are found once the inspector comes to your property due to a tenant complaint. Inspectors will look for leaning fences, cracked walls, exposed sub-floors, indication of leaks or dry rot, or any item that indicates lack of maintenance, going as far as force you to re-landscape! (believe us, we have had many cases in west Hollywood of that nature)

The Ultimate Handyman can go over all those items pre-emptivelly and address all the bad stuff before the inspector sets a foot in your property, and if he finds anything, most likely it will be just to justify his visit.

Building and housing codes are designed for your own safety, to protect your health and anyone else using a dwelling or business. Housing codes can be simple and intuitive, but sometimes code compliance can get really confusing and finding the rules can get complicated. Building codes are more specific and knowledge in construction is paramount in order to properly comply.

 

Housing violations can get especially difficult when complying requires the involvement of other government agencies, like the Department of Building and safety or Housing Authority.  We deal with interdepartmental violation and compliance. Many times one simple violation triggers a series of governmental agencies that can be a nightmare to deal with…
