The Contra Costa County Residential Rental Inspection Program (RRIP) was created by the Board of Supervisors for inspection of the County’s rental housing stock to improve the health and safety of rental housing and eliminate blight caused by inadequate maintenance and upkeep. The RRIP Ordinance was created in 2005 and was restructured in 2010 to permit Building Inspection staff to make an annual visual inspection of all non owner occupied properties. An annual fee is required as enrollment in this mandatory program for the visual inspection as well as any interior inspections that may be required. Property data is obtained from the County Assessor’s Office (e.g. single family, multi-family or apartments) to determine properties not filing for the State of California Owner Occupied Tax Exemption and Rental status.
Annual Program Fees
Program Participation Fee for the first rental unit on property is $36.00 and $6.00 for each additional rental unit on the property.
Interior Inspection Fee for first rental unit on property is $250.00 and $100.00 for each additional rental unit on the property.
