Problem with Deputy Inspector -Reply

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Drew,

The role of the building department is limited to helping determine if an
individual inspector has the minimum education and experience to perform
his/her duties within the local jurisdiction.  Your stated problem shows that
the passing of an ICBO (or Los Angeles) certification alone does not make a 
responsive special inspector. Let the buyer beware !

Complaints with Los Angles special inspectors should be reported to our
Material Control Section @  (213)  368-7570. Our own building Inspectors also
will file an internal complaint with this same section when they observe
misconduct. Special inspectors are given a chance to respond. After due
process, any appropriate disciplinary actions will be taken. These include
warnings, suspension and revocations of licenses.
