Webinar: SB721 CA Balcony Inspections

SB 721 Compliance Webinar

A wooden balcony can fail regardless of the building’s age or by external impact such as earthquakes. California’s Balcony Inspection Law SB721 requires the evaluation of balconies, stairways, and similar structures at multifamily buildings with three or more units inspected no later than January 1, 2025. The statute holds building owners liable to engage a qualified provider to identify immediate threats and recommended actions.

This course provides comprehensive coverage of SB721 and breaks down the course of action to meet the requirements. The attendees will identify what properties are subject to SB-721 law, understand Exterior Elevated Elements (EEE), be familiar with the inspection scope of work, know how to find qualified providers for the inspections, able to schedule and budget for an inspection, expect subsequent work repairs may look like, and learn the compliance best practices.
