The Code Enforcement Outreach Program (CEOP) is an innovative program designed to improve communication and cooperation between tenants and rental property owners. CEOP is a joint project of the Department of Building Inspection (DBI), SFAA and tenant organizations.
The program’s goal is to get the City and the community to work together to bring housing into code compliance and to achieve the abatement of violations prior to the involvement of DBI and/or the City Attorney’s Office. This program will result in better, faster service to clients and save funds that the Department can use on other enforcement services and programs. CEOP can save property owners money before fines are assessed and attorney fees are necessary.
Community outreach coordination, counseling, and mediation assistance are among the services provided by the SFAA and participating agencies.
Its services are available to all San Francisco rental property owners and tenants including those who are not members of the partner agencies. If you are a rental property owner and would like additional information or participate in the program contact Charley at SFAA -- (415) 255-2288 or email [email protected]
