No rear house entrance

Inspected a house that had a front door but no other outside (rear) door. Attached garage with door to house. Is it an issue not having a rear door?

No, unless local AHJ says otherwise.

Home has a front door and a door to the garage. Just no rear door.

Okay…see above. One continuous path to the exterior.

That is common with single story homes built in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s. At least in my area.


The attached single stall garage has steps that go down to the finished basement. This is a split level home. Is there an issue because there is no “curb” between the garage floor and basement steps?

Trip Hazard!!
