  • Quadrennial Inspection Program

    The Quadrennial Inspection Program was established in 1987 to ensure the quality and maintenance of the City’s multi-family housing stock. The Quadrennial Inspection Program was developed with the cooperation of the Foothill Apartment Owner’s Association, the Pasadena Board of Realtors, and City staff.

    All rental properties containing three or more units are subject to the Quadrennial Inspection Program, and are inspected once every four years. After inspection, property owners are notified of any existing code violations and given a reasonable time for their correction. Upon correction of all violations, a Certificate of Occupancy is issued for the rental properties. This program has been effective in identifying multi-family properties that suffer from neglected maintenance, and has contributed significantly to the improvement of the City’s rental housing stock.

    The Quadrennial Inspection Program is administered by the Code Compliance Section of the Planning & Community Development Department, located in the Pasadena Permit Center at 175 N. Garfield Ave.
