Sec. 9-3.1803.  Certificates of compliance.
   (a)   Any person owning real property within the City, or a purchaser under a contract of sale of such property, may request the Community Development Director to determine whether such real property complies with the provisions of this chapter and the Subdivision Map Act.
   (b)   Upon making such determination, the Community Development Director shall cause a 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 the applicable provisions of this Code and the Subdivision Map Act.
   (c)   If the Community Development Director determines that such real property does not comply with the provisions of this Code or the Subdivision Map Act, he may, as a condition to granting a certificate of compliance, impose any of the conditions permitted by this Code or the Subdivision Map Act.  The condition shall be set out in and recorded with the certificate.  Such conditions may be fulfilled and implemented by the property owner who has applied for a certificate of compliance pursuant to this section or by a purchaser of such property owner.  If such conditions are not fulfilled or implemented by the applicant property owner or the purchaser, the certificate of compliance shall have no force or effect upon any subsequent transfer of the property, and any subsequent transferee or assignee shall make a new application for a certificate of compliance pursuant to this section, and the City may impose such conditions as would have been applicable at the time such assignee or transferee acquired the property.
   (d)   A validly recorded final map or parcel map shall constitute a certificate of compliance with respect to the parcels of real property described therein.  It shall be at the discretion of the Community Development Director as to whether a conditional certificate of compliance or subdivision map is appropriate.
   (e)   A fee in the amount of the actual cost to the City shall be charged to the applicant for making the determination and processing the certificate of compliance.  A deposit may be required by the Community Development Director to be applied toward such fee.
