Identify The Problem - INSPECT IT
Windrich Group will IDENTIFY all the issues your property has and Windrich Group will prioritize in what order should the problem(s) be addressed.
- Unpermitted Construction and use
- Unpermitted Conversions or Modifications
- Changes made to the inside or outside of the property
- Fire Life and Safety inspection
“Guessing is giving you advise without understanding the problem thoroughly, we don’t do that” We start by identifying what exactly is the concern or problem at your building. We identify and document every aspect of your issue(s) with pictures and video, we obtain available building records and we analyze everything then we send you a report with our recommendation(s) and we send you the most viable option(s) to solving your concern.
SITE Inspections are necessary when:
- ADDED UNITS or BEDROOMS : We need to see how we can add bedrooms, units and car and bicycle parking spaces.
- CHECK CURRENT BUILDING CONDITIONS: Inspect common areas and inside various un its.
- CURRENT BUILDING or UNIT: Recommended to inspect when inside conditions are uncertain or unknown inside conditions are unknown and of concern. It‘s also referred to as a PRE SCEP INSPECTIONS: (Systematic Code Enforcement Program (SCEP) Th is inspection prepares all rental buildings to minimum building code standard required of all rental properties to follow. It’s safe to say that if your building passes a “SCEP“ inspection, you have an acceptable rental unit and tenants can be assured that their unit is in compliance as required.
- ASSIST MAINTENANCE CREW: Train your maintenance team on–site and give them the direction needed to pass a SCEP inspection. Assist with and identify tenant –created violations.
Correct It Before You Get Inspected
Start work ahead of the citation by doing a Pre-SCEP Inspection through Windrich.
It depends on the Inspector, what he/she brings with them to define your potential issues and/or the wear and tear within the last time you were inspected. The bottom line is once it makes it to a citation, it qualifies. Someone needs to correct or challenge it properly. The most important thing to remember is this scenario does not have to be the common reality consensus if more property owners chose to repair correctly before the city inspection date.
Common areas, missing and torn window screens, damaged ceiling walls and floors, evidence of vermin, rodent or insect infestation, missing screen vents, exit requirements, fire equipment and exit doors, missing or broken or inoperative smoke detectors, damaged interiors (doors,cabinets,windows, countertops,) electrical fixtures, plumbing and heaters.
When the inspector comes, you go through the property and when the inspector writes something, ask what is that they have written. What is it that they found so you can write it in your notes. You are typically not going to get anything for two weeks and you want to get started as soon as possible. Sometimes there are two inspectors and you can only be with one of them at a time. If that’s the case, at the end of each unit you’ve inspected, ask the lead inspector if there were any violations in that particular unit. The inspector will tell you yes or no and say what. If it is not clear, have them explain and write it down on your notes. Do that after every unit and then start to work right away to get these violations taken care of before the inspection is rescheduled. Reschedule is usually 45 days from the date of your inspection.
