Multi-family Housing Inspection

In response to continuous complaints from residents about serious life, health and safety violations in multi-family housing units, the Concord City Council unanimously adopted the Multiple Family Rental Dwelling Unit Inspections and Maintenance Code of the City of Concord on March 7, 2000. (Ordinance 00-2) (CMC 9820).

The purpose of this Code is to proactively identify blighted and deteriorated buildings and ensure the rehabilitation or elimination of housing that does not meet minimum Building and Housing Code, Exterior and Site Maintenance standards.

This Codes applies to all residential rental buildings, including rooming houses, having four (4) units or more on one parcel, or site, including parking lots, driveways, landscaping, accessory structures, fences, walls swimming pools, hot tubs, and spas. Hotels, motels, bed and breakfast, and similar occupancies are specifically excluded from the requirements of this code.

An inspector will inspect the rental dwelling units and their associated properties to determine whether such properties comply with provisions of the California Code of Regulations, State Housing Code, California Health and Safety Code, Uniform Code for the Abatement of Dangerous Building and/or Concord Municipal Codes. Structures and premises that do not comply with the provisions of the Codes listed above will need to be altered or repaired to obtain the required level of compliance or in rare instances, demolished.
