Residential Building Resale Program

Posted on November 4, 2016

Also on Monday, the San Rafael City Council will consider making improvements to the City’s residential building resale (RBR) program. The primary goal of the RBR program is to protect the health and safety of San Rafael residents by inspecting for unsafe, hazardous, or unpermitted work as a residential unit is changing ownership. The California State Auditor’s Office recently reviewed San Rafael’s RBR program in addition to other cities. The performance audit did not suggest the program, or its inspection component, be eliminated. Instead, the audit recommended that the City add additional process and procedures to improve and formalize the RBR program. The Council has recently held two study sessions on this topic to receive community input. On Monday, they will consider a number of suggested improvements based on the feedback to date.
