Venice property owners must pay attention to the State of California’s two mandatory Balcony Inspection laws, California SB 721 and California SB 326, which relate to commercial apartment buildings and condominiums or multi-family housing that are controlled by condominium associations.
If you are an owner or resident in such a Venice building, you must know that the new laws mandate that such buildings undergo a safety inspection of their “Exterior Elevated Elements” that are six or more feet off the ground (e.g., wood, or wood-based exterior balconies, decks, porches, stairways, walkways, entry structures, or other exterior elements with walking surfaces).
Although the laws have a compliance deadline of January 1, 2025, many owners of Venice properties have already inspected and repaired damage to their properties. This is because the closer we get to the deadline, the more buildings will compete for the attention of the relatively small number of Venice balcony inspectors, who will be struggling to cope with inspecting and repairing hundreds of buildings!
