Topic: Complying with New Inspection Laws for Balconies and Elevated Structures

The collapse of a defected apartment balcony that caused several tragic deaths resulted in the passage of two state laws several years ago. The laws enacted by Senate Bill 326 in 2019 and Senate Bill 721 in 2018 require period visual inspections of balconies, stairways, walkways and other exterior elevated structures for residential properties, including HOA communities. The deadline for compliance is approaching, and property managers have lots of questions.

  • What are the requirements of these new laws?
  • Which types of structures on rental properties are affected?
  • Who can perform inspections?
  • What is the deadline for completing inspections?
  • What types of repairs might be required?
  • What are the costs?
  • What are the consequences of not complying with the laws?

We invited two experts to provide the answers to these important questions.
