Interior Inspections

In the event your property has been identified during a visual inspection with unacceptable blight or building safety deficiencies you will be required to allow access for an Interior Inspection of the rental unit(s), grounds, and accessory buildings.  You will receive a “Notice of Mandatory Inspection” letter, which will specify an inspection date for your property, with no specify timeframe as the inspection will be part of the Inspector’s daily route for that day.  If the date is not acceptable, you may contact the RRIP office to schedule an alternate date.  Within 10 days from the date of the “Notice of Mandatory Inspection” letter, you are required to complete a registration form and pay inspection fees based on the number of units on the property. 

Inspection staff will inspect the property and provide a written Interior Inspection Checklist of any deficiencies.  Deficiencies will need to be corrected and re-inspected within ten (10) to thirty (30) days depending on severity. The follow up inspection to ensure corrections were made is referred to as a Courtesy Inspection. No additional fees are required for this inspection.  At the time of the Courtesy Inspection, failure to make all corrections will result in re-inspection fees* for the remaining “unapproved” units.

It is the property owner’s responsibility to give notice and make available; all units, out buildings, and common areas for inspection. Cancellation within 24 hours of inspection, no shows, or units inaccessible at the time of inspection may result in re-inspection fees. Cancellation of two appointments may cause the County to record a Notice of Pending Nuisance Abatement Proceeding on your property records and assess an Administrative Fine.

*The inspector is not allowed to accept payment for any service in the field.
