South San Francisco Rejects Home Inspections
South San Francisco Code Enforcement has been requiring inspections of homes at time of sale.
It originally began as inspections only for smoke detectors and water heaters.
It expanded into an inspection for building permits. It was beyond health and safety concerns.
Due to an outpour of concern from Residents and the San Mateo County of Realtors, on Jan, 16 South San Francisco City Council voted to “Table” the issue of Point of Sale Inspections. Mayor Pro Tem Karyl Matsumoto said the issue is “dead”.
I thank you for your support in defeating this.
As of now the inspections are no longer required although if you would like I do believe the city will inspect your home at no charge if you request it.
For further information:
It is still required for South San Francisco Home Sellers to perform a sewer lateral inspection and to meet compliance prior to a home selling.
