Home Inspection now mandated by law

Apparently beginning July 1st 2008 Baltimore county MD has a new law requiring all landlords of small multi unit apartment buildings to get a home inspection once every three years.

Anybody have more info?

Here is a link to the story. http://homeimprovementnews.blogspot.com/

It’s been going on in Missouri cities for years.

The inspections are “code” inspections conducted by city inspectors (or those contracted by the city) with a short list of “priority” items. The folks pay anywhere from $75 to $95 for these inspections.

Hi Bob,

Jim is correct many jurisdictions require that rental properties are issued a new CO every “X” years or whenever the tennant changes.
