The City of South Lake Tahoe has created a Housing Issues Hotline to assist residents with landlord-tenant concerns. The Housing Issues Hotline is a phone number you can call and get information, locate resources, request assistance, or potentially file a complaint regarding the condition of your rental unit.

Your Landlord is Required to Provide
  • Effective waterproofing and weather protection of roof and outside walls, including unbroken windows.
  • Hot and cold running water provided and connected to a sewage disposal system.
  • Plumbing and gas facilities in good working order.
  • Electrical lighting with wiring, and electrical equipment maintained in good working order.
  • Floors, stairways, and railings, maintained in good repair.
  • The building and all grounds free of rodents, and other pests.

Hotline Process
  1. Call the Housing Hotline at (530) 542-7417. You can also send an email or complete the Housing Issues Citizens Report and the Tenants Affidavit of Service Form
  2. A building inspector will then arrange an inspection visit at your apartment or house.
  3. The building inspector will identify any building violations and will contact the owner with a written notice to comply.

Substandard Housing Inspection Fee
The fee for a substandard housing inspection is $511. The property owner is responsible to pay the fee, due within 30 days of receipt of the first violation notice.
