Notice and Order to Comply: Health and Safety

 

Update March 19 2016

Hi Point Apts is Unsanitary, Substandard, and Unsafe

LA county Public Health Feb 10 2016 have said they have no authority over the wiring in the 1522 Hi Point St 90035 building.

Health and Safety code 17920.3 sections(a)(13) and (d) and (i) give the city and county employees jurisdiction, but as of March 16 talk with city code enforcement, and after over two years of defective security system intercom wiring, government employees maintain they have no jurisdiction under H & S code 17920.3. City employee Richard Brinson, Le Taun J. Cotton, Veronica Bauchman, David Burkhead, Richard Jackson, and Udo O. Nwachuku all claim the city and county employees have no jurisdiction to enforce defective and improperly maintained wiring.

Since there is general dilapidation abandoned vehicle and improper maintenance of the wiring and construction materials, the Health and Safety code 17920.3 declares the building to be “unsanitary” and “substandard” and “unsafe”. Tenant security is at risk.

My question to [Los Angeles] Mayor Eric Garcetti, Raymond Cervantes, Agassi Topchian* and Ian Yeom*, et al, is in these times of racial strife across this country of the United States, should any Black American be denied a housing service?”

An inspection of the premises has revealed conditions that affect the health and safety of the occupants and cause the building to be determined to be in violation of the City of Los Angeles Municipal Code and or California Health and Safety Code….”.

Any and all units are subject to re inspection and require the same uniform compliance throughout the premises.”

Unapproved plumbing. Please provide permits and approvals from LADBS for scope of work including but not limited to copper re-pipe and plumbing upgrades.”*

Property Management Training Program (PMTP). When a property manager has failed to comply with a notice or order within 45 days of less of the specified compliance date, the owner is required to pay a $225 registration fee…failure to comply may result in the imposition of a criminal infraction….”

Relocation Information“. ….If the landlord fails, neglects, or refuses to pay relocation payments, the City may advance relocation payments to the affected tenant(s). Recovery of the relocation payments plus a penalty of 50% will be assessed against the property in the form of a lien as per H&S code section 50657(b).”

Where indicated above, plans and/or a building permit from the department of building and safety is required to be obtained before repair or demolition work is started.”

[Author note: it appears the owner moved tenant(s) into units without permits being obtained or inspections occurring.]

[Author Note: the previous information is excerpted from a publicly posted city government document dated and mailed September 22, 2014 and posted to the 1522 Hi Point Street [90035]  building on October 7 2014.  *The affected apartment numbers referenced in the notice are not included on this webpage. All 18 units in the building were occupied at the time of the notice and are currently occupied.]

[Author note: if you know of anyone living at the property, please pass this on to them; perhaps this will encourage tenants to talk amongst themselves, for everyone’s Health and Safety, and as in “Neighborhood Watch”.]

[Note: no word yet on will code enforcement take action on wiring problems in numerous units.]
