Rental Inspection Checklist
The Rental Inspection Checklist contains some of the most common property maintenance violations and is intended to assist property owners in being prepared for city property inspections. This is merely a list of the most common violations and does not include all possible violations. The City of Ferndale has adopted the 2012 International Property Maintenance Code book, if owners wish to consult further possible violations.
