Most common Housing Violations: it happens:

The most common violations have to do with these types of Violation: 

Electrical hazard, Fire Safety, failure in Heating equipment, improper Ventilation, among many other common Maintenance items

Among those items, they expand to failing, leaking or defective Plumbing, improper Sanitation either tenants or your responsibility, Structural Hazards or failing structural members.  

To finalize this list, its important to mention that Zoning violations can also be considered a housing violation, especially if the residence is used in another manner other than that for which the subject property is intended, within the zone that it is in.

Is your home, income property, or commercial establishment in code violation? Are you sure your smoke detectors, safety bars, and signage are properly in place?

Normally, if you are a residential landlord, your number would come up approximately every two years (it’s statistics). But the rule says every four. Read it here.

Having a good team to deal with Housing Violations

Under these circumstances, that cannot be good. They are probably telling you that you are not following their rules. 

Generally speaking, The Ultimate Handyman intercedes, makes things right, up-to-code and makes the problem go away.

More common Housing Violations:

To start, the most common violations are cracking paint that needs to be patched and repainted, second is missing or improperly installed smoke detectors, then comes leaky fixtures, damaged or inoperable windows and doors

There may be many more housing violations, but after the most common ones, comes damaged flooring or other broken fixtures, along with anything that can be a hazard to the dwellers.

But the most important thing to know, it that many other items, in fact a whole list, may come to you once the inspector comes to your property due to a tenant complaint. 

When complaints come to play in Housing Violations

As a direct result of a complaint, Inspectors will look for leaning fences, cracked walls, exposed sub-floors, indication of leaks or dry rot, mold, or any item that indicates lack of maintenance.

The worse of it all is that they have a power of discretionary determination, which is simply the power to come up with things they determine important, regardless of the rules on the books. 

This power goes as far as forcing you to re-landscape! (believe us, we have had many cases in west Hollywood of that nature)

For this reason, The Ultimate Handyman can go over all those items pre-emptively and address all the bad stuff before the inspector sets a foot in your property.

Consequently, if he finds anything, most likely it will be just to justify his visit.

Housing violations that trigger Building and Safety:

Building and housing codes are designed for your own safety. 

They are there to protect your health and anyone else using a dwelling or business. But at the same time that housing codes can be simple and intuitive, these same codes sometimes may get nightmarish on interpretations. 

In addition, code compliance can get really confusing, and finding a balance in between interdepartmental acceptance of the same rules can get complicated. 

On the other hand, Building codes are more specific and matter of fact. In this case, a good knowledge in construction is paramount in order to properly comply, or at least to argue each and every case based on the written rules.

Don't let a housing violation turn into a building code violation or health code violation.

Moreover, housing violations can get especially difficult when complying requires the involvement of other government agencies, like the Department of Building and safety or Housing Authority.  

We deal with interdepartmental violation and compliance. Many times one simple violation triggers a series of governmental agencies that can be a nightmare to deal with. 

So read on and pay attention.
