California's Balcony Law

California Senate Bill SB721 was signed into law in 2018 and took effect in January 2019. Essentially, the Statute requires the evaluation of balconies, stairways, and similar structures at multifamily buildings with three or more units no later than January 1, 2025. The statute requires building owners to engage an engineer, architect or other qualified provider to asses a portion of “Exterior Elevated Elements” to identify immediate threats and recommended actions. Specific timelines for reporting, permitting and repair apply, and subsequent reviews are required every six years.

Join us for a live, informative webinar presented by Partner's Technical Director of Structural Engineering Services, Jay Kumar, PE. Jay will discuss the background of SB721, its implications for property owners and lenders, and some frequently asked questions.
