The inspectors are accused of taking payments to approve construction projects without actually inspecting them.
An informant told investigators that he bribed 49-year-old Hugo Gonzalez of Eagle Rock and 59-year-old Raoul Germain of Altadena with thousands of dollars in cash, vacations and home improvement projects.
Germain was free on $100,000 bail Saturday, while Gonzalez was denied bail, because prosecutors said he might flee to Mexico.
If convicted, the inspectors could spend 10 years in prison.
