For apartment buildings and Condominium
January 1, 2025
Without regular inspections and maintenance, balconies are prone to a variety of structural problems and wood decay due to dry rot, termites, long term and regular exposure to moisture, and lack of drying mechanisms. When left unchecked, the balconies can become high risk and result in a disaster. California Senate Bills 326 & 721 (sb326, sb721) were developed as a response after a deadly collapse of a balcony in Berkeley, California in June 2015- 6 students died and 7 were injured.
SB 721- For apartment buildings, legislation requires any multi-family with three or more (3+) dwelling units to complete an inspection of all Exterior Elevated Elements (EEE) by January 1, 2025, and every 6 years thereafter.
SB326- For Condominium HOA’S, legislation requires an inspection of all Exterior Elevated Elements (EEE) to be completed by January 1, 2025, and every 9 years thereafter.
