Residential Rental Property Inspections, Permits, and Registration: Changes for 2017
In an effort to protect code-compliant residential landlords from being subject to inspection, permit, and registration requirements, the General Assembly has enacted modifications to the periodic inspection statutes used by local governments. The most recent enactment was Session Law 2016-122 (the “IPR law”), which took effect on January 1, 2017. This bulletin employs a question and answer format to explain the IPR law.
