There is a City of Los Angeles 9A report that will be required upon closing that certifies that these items have been taken care of, or will be taken care of as a condition of the sale. That requirement cannot be waived, however parties can agree to handle it outside of escrow, and either party can complete the repairs. These are the minimum upon sale requirements in the City of LA. Other cities in the LA area may have different requirements and you can find them on their City Building and Safety websites usually. Also a local escrow company can probably tell you what the current city ordinances require upon real estate transfers.
I hope that helps!
