SF Asbestos Notice of Violation


Have you received an Asbestos Notice of Violation (NOV) from San Francisco Building Department for a property that you own.  We can help!

This type of NOV can be a minor annoyance to repair or something that, if you don’t respond to this immediately, can balloon into fines and liens from the building department.  We recommend you have the site tested properly right away.

The Building Department is very busy; so there must have been a complaint about the building for the Building Department to “come visit” your project. Often neighbors are concerned about what is happening on your project. Communication with all interested parties will certainly help. Very few people know what to expect during asbestos removal. If they are educated and can see that you are using correct removal methods, it will help speed your project. This post assumes that you know better than to hire untrained, unskilled workers to demo your project.

Think of it like a parking ticket – ignore it and your car will eventually get an expensive boot.

If you have received a Notice of Violation for asbestos, lead or mold (or all three) call us. If we don’t answer the phone – no “push 1 for this and 2 for that” – leave us a message, and we will call you back ASAP. Understand that time is not your friend with a NOV.
