The relevant code sections is 1629.1, "Basis for Design", bottom of pg.

Per UBC 1630.8, "every structure shall be designed to resist the overturning
effects.... See Section 1612 for combining gravity and seismic forces". 

Do you use the Strength Design combinations or the Allowable Stress Design
combinations? Is overturning dependent of the design method, or is it a
serviceability issue and therefore the service combinations should be used?
