The mission of the Code Enforcement office is to preserve and promote public safety and welfare by enforcing the standards of the Laguna Beach Municipal Code. Code Enforcement investigates possible violations of the code, which include sign regulations, zoning code, property maintenance, business license requirements and the noise abatement program. Code Enforcement also responds to complaints of the Uniform Housing Code and complaints of construction without a permit.
Tenant/landlord issues are typically considered civil matters unless they are building safety and/or unpermitted construction issues. For more information regarding tenant/landlord issues, please visit the Fair Housing website: http://www.fairhousingoc.org/index.html.
