LA Systematic Code Enforcement Program (SCEP)

Los Angeles Systematic Code Enforcement Program (SCEP) was established to guarantee, through systematic inspections, that those who reside in rental units in Los Angeles have a safe, livable space which meets the City & State codes for habitability. The SCEP affects residents who reside in units within boundaries of the City of Los Angeles, including the neighborhoods of Hollywood, Marina del Rey, Palms, & Venice. As of 1/1/2005, and all subsequent years, a landlord may collect the annual fee from the resident of the rental unit on a monthly basis. Meaning the landlord will bill 1/12 of the fee each month for twelve months.
