Building Code Enforcement

Building Code Enforcement operates under Building and Safety Services and ensures that new construction and structural improvements in San Leandro are executed safely and in compliance with the California Building Standards Code. Our primary mission is "Fire, Life, and Safety," to assist our residents, property owners, and contractors to ensure proper permits are in place when required. The Building Code Enforcement Team is responsible for enforcing the City's Municipal Code, the California Building, Electric, Plumbing, and Mechanical Codes, the International Property Maintenance Code, and the California Health and Safety Code (Section 17920). These codes govern structures over 120 square feet.

The enforcement process begins when a concern is reported to us. The preferred method to report concerns is by using MySL.

We invite you to review our enforcement process to familiarize yourself with the steps that the Building Code Enforcement team follows in an effort to gain voluntary compliance. We also encourage reviewing regulations pertaining to common concerns in our community, and report valid concerns.
