SLO County Code Enforcement

Here is the County of San Luis Obispo Code Enforcement Department process for reporting code enforcement concerns.

Go to SLO County’s website – here is a hotlink to the forms

    • Fill out the appropriate form (requires the APN or address of violation)
      1. If it is a violation for a short term/vacation rental click on the link to that site or call 805-723-2500
      2. If it is a cannabis violation click on the link to that site
      3. If you would like to speak to the Code Enforcement office staff directly, call 805-781-2350

The Hotline number is 805-788-2350. This number is answered by a third party company 24/7. The person will ask the caller questions to better understand the situation. The third party company will then email all the information received and send it by email to the Code Enforcement Office.

What happens next when the Code Enforcement office receives the written report:

  • The code enforcement concern is assigned an investigator to respond
  • The investigator will contact the reporting party to review complaint
  • The investigator will complete a site inspection

If a violation is found, the owner of the property has one month to resolve the issue

If the violation is not resolved, a fine will be sent to the property owner. Fines are accessed after failure to resolve the identified violations of County Code. Referrals to the County Hearing Officer will occur after failure to resolve the identified violations and failure to pay the assessed fees or fines.

When reporting, please remember there are many good reasons for something to fall out of code, or which may be compliant. All parties have rights.
