These codes address the protection of wood exterior surfaces by painting, leaking roofs, deteriorated or damaged structural members and interior damage to name a few of the areas.
When a violation is discovered the property owner is notified and given up to 30 days to correct the condition. If the owner is unable to correct the condition in the 30-day period, but submits an acceptable time schedule for the repairs extensions may be granted.
If the owner takes no action or is not declared a "hardship condition" by the Housing Board of Adjustments and Appeals, he can be issued a summons to court where he must answer to the courts ruling.
If you have a concern or wish additional information contact the inspectors at 757-393-8522.
