Received a Violation?
Buildings that are in violation of this program are subject to the enforcement of the San Francisco Building Code. Buildings that are in violation of this program will be placarded with an "Earthquake Warning" placard noticing the building's owner, tenants, and general public of the risk posed by the building. Buildings who do not complete the work in the time required, apply for a permit in the time required, and/or do not complete the screening process successfully are in violation.
Should the cited owner continue to fail to abate the violation(s), they will be sent to a Director’s Hearing to come before a Hearing Officer and explain why they haven’t complied. An assessment of costs, accounting for the time our inspectors spent on getting the property owner to comply will be applied to the property.
