Seminar description:

Complying with Mandatory Inspection Laws for Balconies & Elevated Structures

Recently enacted California state legislation (Senate Bill 326 and 721) requires the inspection of elevated exterior wood-supported structures (e.g., decks, balconies, porches, stairways, walkways, and railings) and associated waterproofing elements (e.g., flashing, membranes, coatings, and sealants) of buildings with three or more residential units. The initial inspection must be performed by January 1, 2025. This seminar explains the law, which properties are affected, responsibilities of property managers, details of the inspection process, required reports, and the costs. Q&A session at end of seminar.
