(a) Any person owning real property or a vendee of that person pursuant to a contract of sale of the real property, may request the Director to determine whether the real property complies with the provisions of this Chapter and the SMA. The Director shall forward the request to the City Attorney for review.
(b) Upon making a determination of compliance, the Director shall, in accordance with Section 66499.35 of the SMA, cause a certificate or conditional certificate of compliance to be filed for record with the County Recorder. The certificate of compliance shall identify the real property and shall state that the division of land complies with applicable provisions of the City Regulations and the SMA.
(c) A recorded Final or Parcel Map shall constitute a certificate of compliance with respect to the parcels of real property described therein.
(d) If the Director determines that the real property does not comply with the provisions of this Code or the SMA the Director shall issue a conditional certificate of compliance. In issuing a conditional certificate of compliance the Director may impose such conditions (including but not limited to filing an application for a corrected Tentative, Final or Parcel Map) as would have been applicable to the division of the property at the time the Applicant acquired his or her interest therein, and which had been established at such time by this Code or the SMA. Where the Applicant was the owner of record at the time of the initial violation of the provisions of this division or of local ordinances enacted pursuant thereto who by a grant of real property created a parcel or parcels in violation of this Code or the SMA, and that person is the current owner of record of one or more of the parcels which were created as a result of the grant on violation of this Code or the SMA, then the Director may impose any conditions which would have been applicable to a current division of the property.
