Property Inspector's Guide to Codes, Forms, & Complaints

Linda S. Pieczynski

Inspectors now have a partner in enforcing the property maintenance code!

This valuable resource demonstrates how to prepare the documents required to pursue property maintenance code violators so that inspectors can perform inspections, file charges in the absence of compliance, obtain administrative search warrants, and condemn property "by the book."

Comprehensive coverage clearly shows the inspector how to enforce the International Property Maintenance Code regulations with sample forms for every document that the code requires and sample complaints for every possible violation.

This information will enable inspectors to do their jobs properly by helping them ensure that they follow the required steps in enforcement.

  • This book is designed to be used with any version of the IPMC, though based on the 2006 and 2003 versions
  • A sample form is provided for almost every section of the 2006 International Property Maintenance Code so that vital documents can be drafted correctly the first time
  • Use of the forms helps ensure that the inspectors' work will be uniform and complete, fostering the prevention of costly errors
  • Listings of the various violations that may occur on residential and commercial properties are included, as well as tables to assist readers in understanding the Code
  • Functional checklists will help inspectors remember key matters so that their cases will stand up in a court of law
  • Even if the inspector's municipality does not use the International Property Maintenance Code, the provided forms are universal enough to be adapted for local use
  • Includes a CD containing PDF files of sample forms, complaints, and notices (these forms can be printed and changed to adapt to the specifics of the jurisdiction)
  • Includes an entire chapter dedicated to Public Nuisances, which will benefit those jurisdictions that have not adopted the International Property Maintenance Code because they use these same types of violations found in the model code
  • Back-of-book CD-ROM included
