8.40.100   Refusal to Permit Inspection.
   A.   If an inspection is scheduled and entry is thereafter refused or cannot be obtained, the inspector shall have recourse to every remedy provided by law to secure lawful entry and inspect the premises, including but not limited to securing an inspection warrant pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure Sections 1822.50 through 1822.57. The inspector shall provide notice that a warrant has been issued to both the owner/operator and the tenant or occupant at least twenty-four (24) hours before the warrant is executed, unless the judge finds that immediate execution is reasonably necessary under the circumstances shown.
   B.   Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the inspector has reasonable cause to believe that the residential rental dwelling unit is so hazardous, unsafe or dangerous as to require immediate inspection to safeguard the public health or safety, the inspector shall have the right to immediately enter and inspect the premises and may use any reasonable means required to effect the entry and make an inspection.
