Ensure that your rental properties are safe by following building codes and inspection requirements.
Landlords must ensure their properties meet safety requirements, including the California Building Standards Code and local requirements for exterior elevated elements such as decks. Perform an annual inspection of your properties to ensure they are safe. If you must relocate your tenants in order to make repairs to fix safety issues, you must provide them financial compensation. When considering tenants, you may not discriminate on the basis of protected characteristics or criminal background.
