Get the city leaders of San Luis Obispo to rescind the Rental Housing Inspection Program.

This petition made change with 771 supporters!

The Rental Housing Inspection Program became law in 2016. This law will require single family homes and duplexes, in the city of San Luis Obispo, to be inspected every three years. Landlords will pay to participate in this program, and be fined if their property fails inspection. The expressed goal of this program is to enforce a minimal level of quality and safety for the oppressed renting population of San Luis Obispo.

The goal of this new law is admirable, but the true cost is horrendous! The new Rental Housing Inspection Program (law) will put a serious financial burden on many SLO citizens, and violate the 4th amendment of many others.
The city government of San Luis Obispo anticipates this law will generate many hundreds of thousands of dollars of revenue a year. This revenue will come out of the pockets of the landlords of the inspected rental properties. Unfortunately, none of this revenue will be used to aid these landlords with repairs needed to pass a rental property inspection. The city plans to keep all the revenue from this law.


Rental properties will undergo an 82 point inspection, and the majority of the inspection takes place inside the rental property. The fourth amendment guarantees all renters privacy, and restricts unwarranted searches and their home. This law is a disgraceful infringement of innocent renter’s rights.


The mayor, vice mayor, and three city council members voted on the Rental Housing Inspection Program. It became a law by a 3 to 2 vote. These leaders have the power to create and rescind laws. Sign this petition to ask the city leaders to rescind the Rental Housing Inspection Program.
