Sec. 8-12.06.  Inspection, corrective work and clearances.
   The inspection part of the report shall represent the condition of the property on the day of the inspection, as can reasonably be established by the City given time and staff limitations, and shall not include an assessment of quality or workmanship of the residential building nor the working condition of its plumbing, electrical or mechanical systems.
   The inspection of the property shall determine the accuracy of City records and the corrective work needed to meet minimum standards to safeguard life or limb, health, property and public welfare.
   Unless a hazard to health and safety exists, construction previously approved under prior permits and inspections will not be required to be brought up to current Building Code Standards.
   Except as otherwise may be indicated, items identified in the inspection report as being in violation of City codes shall be corrected within thirty (30) days of receipt of the report.
   The City shall make no determination as to who shall be responsible for payment of corrective work but shall give notice to the “owner of record” regarding code violations.
   Permits shall be obtained for all corrective work necessary to bring the building into compliance with the City’s codes and ordinances.  Permit fees, as established by City Council, shall be charged to cover the costs of reinspection of the property.
   A report clearance shall be issued upon correction of all violations as noted in the inspection report.
