Safer Home Evaluation for
The Safer Home Evaluation inspection is designed to meet legislative requirements and goes beyond inspecting the minimum housing standards to include additional observations of high-risk safety hazards.
By conducting this inspection, landlords can minimize the risk of exposure to potential legal claims and protect the safety of tenants and visitors to the property.
As a landlord, you understand the importance of ensuring that your properties meet the new minimum housing standards. However, keeping up with the recent legislative changes can be challenging and time-consuming.
It’s also important to note that the vast majority of property managers and landlords do NOT have the expertise to determine a property’s structural soundness and identify hidden safety hazards when it comes to the minimum housing standards.
