CODE INSPECTION AND RENTAL HOUSING SAFETY PROGRAM FEES
The City of Berkeley Housing Department is proposing the
following fee changes:
Code Inspection Fee - Under the current fee structure
for housing code inspections, homeowners are charged $200 for each
reinspection in which it has been determined that the owner has
failed to correct all cited housing code violations.
The current fee structure reduces this fee to $125 if there
are other units within the same building that are currently active
and subject to the higher fee amount.
The proposed change eliminates the two-tiered fee structure
for housing code inspection fees.
Under the new proposal, homeowners will be charged $200 for
each reinspection in which it is determined that all cited housing
code violations have not been corrected regardless of the number
of active cases from the same building.
The proposed schedule does not charge for initial
inspections conducted or for reinspections in which it has been
determined that all housing code violations have been corrected.
Fee for the Rental Housing Safety Program - The City is
proposing to establish an annual fee of $10 per unit for all
rental units in building complexes containing three or more units
as part of the Rental Housing and Safety Program (RHSP).
This fee is intended to offset the operational costs for
the RHSP program which requires owners to certify that their units
meet certain safety requirements.

Housing Department: 981-5429.
