What will an inspection entail?

An inspector will physically walk through the rental unit to make sure basic life and safety standards are being met. The inspector will complete an inspection report and provide that report to the city.

If all standards are met, a certificate of compliance will be issued for the property.

If standards are not met, the city building department will provide the landlord with a list of changes needed to bring the unit into compliance.

The inspection checklist does not preclude property owners from complying with the full building maintenance code.
