Multiple Dwelling Inspection Schedule Gets Gov's Ok

Earlier this week, Acting Governor Sheila Oliver signed into law S-1150, which authorizes the Department of Community Affairs to establish a flexible multiple dwelling inspection schedule. Current law requires the DCA to inspect multiple dwellings at least once every five years. Under the newly signed legislation, inspection schedules will be more frequent or less frequent depending on the history of violation abatement.

The new schedule establishes an inspection cycle as often as once every two years for those multiple dwellings that fail to abate all housing violations by the third re-inspection; less frequent inspections, once every seven years, for multiple dwelling in which all violations have been abated by the first re-inspection; and five-year inspection cycle remain for multiple dwellings that fall in between these categories. P.L. 2019, c. 202 took effect August 5, 2014, and will be applicable to the next new inspection cycle for a hotel or multiple dwelling.
