Latest version.
  • Any person having the legal right to do so may repair or demolish a substandard building or do any other work required to remove the substandard conditions at any time prior to the time when the County does so, but if such person does such work after the time specified in the Notice of Substandard Building or Substandard Property if no hearing was requested, otherwise, after the time specified in the last order of the Building Rehabilitation Appeals Board, all costs incurred by the County in preparation for the doing of such work are chargeable to the property and shall be collected as provided in Sections 9928 and 9929.

    If such work is completed after the Building Official or purchasing agent has awarded a contract for such work, the contractor shall receive the Contract Cancellation Fee as specified in Table 1-F, for the building official's overhead and incidental expenses, unless specifically excluded by contract, and said fee plus the amount specified in Section 9927 shall be the costs incurred by the County. If such work is completed before the Building Official or purchasing agent has awarded a contract, the amount specified in Section 9927 shall be the costs incurred by the County.
