   108.1  General.
When a structure or equipment is found by the code enforcement officer to be unsafe, or when a structure is found unfit for human occupancy or is found unlawful, such structure shall be condemned pursuant to the provisions of this Code.
      108.1.1  Unsafe structures.
An unsafe structure is one that is found to be dangerous to the life, health, property or safety of the public or the occupants of the structure by not providing minimum safeguards to protect or warn occupants in the event of fire, or because such structure contains unsafe equipment which is so damaged, decayed, dilapidated, structurally unsafe, or of such faulty construction or unstable foundation, that partial or complete collapse is possible.
      108.1.2 Unsafe equipment.
Unsafe equipment includes any boiler, heating equipment, elevator, moving stairway, electrical wiring or device, flammable liquid containers or other equipment on the premises or within the structure which is in such disrepair or condition that such equipment is a hazard to life, health, property or safety of the public or occupants of the premises or structure.
      108.1.3 Structure unfit for human occupancy.
A structure is unfit for human occupancy whenever the code enforcement officer finds that such structure is unsafe, unlawful, or, because of the degree to which the structure is in disrepair or lacks maintenance, is insanitary, vermin or rat infested, contains filth and contamination, or lacks ventilation, illumination, sanitary or heating facilities or other essential equipment required by this Code, or because the location of the structure constitutes a hazard to the occupants of the structure or to the public.
      108.1.4  Unlawful structure.
An unlawful structure is one found in whole or in part to be occupied by more persons than permitted under this Code, or was erected, altered or occupied contrary to law.
108.2  Closing of vacant structures.
If the structure is vacant and unfit for human habitation and occupancy, and is not in danger of structural collapse, the code enforcement officer is authorized to post a placard of condemnation on the premises and order the structure closed up so as not to be an attractive nuisance.  Upon failure of the owner to close up the premises within the time specified in the order, the code enforcement officer shall cause the premises to be closed through any available public agency or by contract or arrangement by private persons and the cost thereof shall be charged against the real estate upon which the structure is located and shall be a lien upon such real estate.
   108.3  Notice.
Whenever the code enforcement officer has condemned a structure or equipment under the provisions of this section, notice shall be posted in a conspicuous place in or about the structure affected by such notice and served on the owner or the person or persons responsible for the structure or equipment in accordance with Section 107.3.  If the notice pertains to equipment, it shall also be placed on the condemned equipment.  The notice shall be in the form prescribed in Section 107.2.
