A Certificate of Non-Compliance does not carry a monetary penalty and cannot be cleared by paying a fine. The certificate may only be removed by correcting the violations specified on the certificate. Once the violations have been corrected, a follow-up inspection will be required to ensure the property is in compliance. Once the violations are corrected a Certificate of Compliance may be issued cancelling the previous document. Once issued, it is important to record the Certificate of Compliance with the San Diego County Recorder’s Office.
If the City of Oceanside abated a nuisance on your property and filed a lien rather than a Certificate of Non-Compliance, please contact the Neighborhood Services Division Manager, David Manley, at 760-435-3963.
