How often will properties be inspected?

Single-family homes, condos and townhome rentals will be inspected every-other year.

Common spaces in apartment buildings will be inspected annually, and a third of the units will be inspected each year, so all the units will be inspected over a three-year period.

Inspections will be scheduled in advance to give landlords and tenants due notice and minimize inconvenience. Properties where violations are found may be inspected more often.
