Housing

The Environmental Health Division is responsible for ensuring that residential housing is safe, sanitary, and fit for human habitation. This is accomplished through routine inspections of rental property with 5 or more units and investigations of complaints involving any housing sites.

The Division has enforcement authority for all unincorporated areas of the county and in all cities except for Long Beach, Pasadena, and Vernon.

Conditions addressed include, but are not limited to:

  • Green pools / Mosquito breeding at private residences
  • Sewage discharge
  • Insect or Rodent infestations
  • Damaged walls, floors, ceiling, roof
  • Lack of hot/cold water
  • Clogged, leaking or inoperable plumbing fixtures
  • Lack of maintenance (heating, lighting, electrical, ventilation, swimming pools)
  • Lead and Mold Hazards
  • Unsanitary conditions (trash accumulation, animal droppings)

For specific information about all of our housing programs, see:

  • District Surveillance & Enforcement Program – Routine inspections and complaint investigations at apartments, condominiums, homes, markets, restaurants and laundries
