What happens if the property doesn't pass inspection?
If the property fails inspection, correction work will be required. If repairs are minor, a conditional occupancy permit may be issued, giving the owner 60 days to complete repairs on the building while residents live there. If the work is completed within that time period, an unconditional occupancy permit will be issued to the resident. However, if work is not completed within the 60 days the City may notify both the owner and the residents that their occupancy is no longer valid. If residents continue to occupy the property after being notified, the City can take legal action against the property owner and residents.
