What happens if a problem is found on an inspection?

Single dwelling rental units shall be inspected on an annual basis by the owner, or by another under direct authorization from the owner for compliance with the housing and property maintenance code. At the time of license application the applicant will be required to submit a completed property maintenance checklist. 

  • Through the use of the checklist, they will indicate which items are currently in good condition and in working order and also indicate if any items need attention. If an item is identified as not being in good condition and in working order, staff will work with the owner/applicant to establish a timeline for correction of any deficiencies and scheduling of follow-up inspections once the corrections are complete.
