If you have received an NOV or SWO, a Building Code Enforcement Officer has already researched the City database confirming there are no permits on file. Contact the issuing officer within the prescribed time frame on the notice. To ensure compliance, a building permit will be required to bring the converted garage back to its original state. Once compliance is achieved, the case will be closed.
In some cases, you can convert your garage into a habitable space. Please contact Planning Services at 510-577-3325 to learn more about this process. You can also learn more about the Off-Street Parking and Loading Zoning Code regulations.
