(A) This Code is enacted only for the purpose of securing to individuals the enjoyment of rights and privileges to which they are entitled as members of the public, rather than for the purpose of protecting any individual from harm.
(B) The city, its officers, employees or agents make no representations or warranties of any kind whatsoever, expressed or implied, with respect to the completeness or thoroughness of the inspections and examinations performed under this Code, but the inspections are made solely to assist the owner of the building, structure, equipment and premises to meet certain minimum requirements of this Code and to compel, if necessary, the owner to meet the minimum requirements for the protection of the health, welfare and safety of persons and property. Nothing herein contained in this Code shall alleviate the owner of any building, structure, equipment and premises to make an independent inspection in order to fulfill the requirements of this Code nor shall this Code be construed to relieve or lessen the responsibility of any person owning, operating or controlling any building, structure, equipment or premises regulated herein from any damages to any person or property caused by defects or Code violations. The city, its officers, employees or agents shall not be held as assuming any liability for damages to any person or property by reason of any inspections authorized by this Code or investigations, or any approvals issued herein, or for any act or failure to act in the enforcement of this Code.
