I’ve just started the home inspector training, I’m taking the plumbing overview course at the moment. I understand that an automatic clothes washer connection is required in residential homes but what about rental properties? Here I’m thinking more about small vacation cottages.
This came to my mind as my wife is currently in the process of purchasing a small cottage that she intends to rent out. Most guests will stay for just a few days at a time but there is a hospital nearby so it is possible that she could rent the cottage out to a visiting nurse for a few months at a time. This particular cottage does not have an automatic clothes washer connection, so does that represent a code violation, or are rental properties exempt?
Advice and guidance is very welcome.
