Residential Inspection Checklist

The wording of the checklist items is not to be interpreted as City codified building regulations, but rather a guideline to better understand the building inspection criteria used by the City for individual building inspections. Always refer to the referenced section and/or table for accuracy of written regulation.

The published residential inspection checklists include:
