Spring Inspections on Rental Properties

inspectionIn an effort to help ensure that all housing meets basic safety standards a selection of rental housing properties will receive safety inspections starting this month. These inspections are taking place under the Rental Registration and Inspection Ordinance (RRIO), which was established by the Seattle City Council to help ensure that rental housing properties in Seattle are safe and meet basic housing requirements and safety standards. Mayor Ed Murray has stated, “No one in Seattle should be forced to live with a roof that leaks, a toilet that doesn’t flush, or an unreliable heating system. By registering rental properties and conducting random inspections, we can help ensure that these properties meet the basic standards that any of us would expect.” For more on the inspections and the program click here for an article from MyBallard or here to read the report from the Department of Planning and Development.
