City of Westlake Village Retrofitting (Code Compliance) Requirements When Selling

Westlake village retrofit

Most Realtors in Westlake Village commonly ‘waive’ RPA governmental code compliance when selling, even though given the option, many sellers would opt for a ‘retrofit’ or ‘code compliance’ inspection upon sale to cover their liability.

When selling a home in the city of Westlake Village (both LA and Ventura county sides) the following items should be checked by a ‘dis-interested’ and independent third party retrofitter for full compliance. This ensures all parties, including sellers, agents and their brokers, will be covered in case of problems after the close of escrow.

As always, check with your escrow officer and office broker on their policy for governmental code compliance when selling. Some brokerages do not allow code compliance to be ‘waived’ by participating agents.

Smoke detectors in each bedroom, bedroom hallway, and on each floor. Seismic EQ valve on gas meter is not required. Carbon monoxide detector on each level at least. Hot Water heater correctly double strapped. Low flow toilets and showerhead in each bathroom. Other code compliance may apply.

Again the same rules apply for Westlake Village for the LA county side as well as the Ventura (city of Thousand Oaks) County side. Los Angeles side is incorporated city of Westlake Village and the zip code is 91362. County of Ventura side is within the city boundary of Thousand Oaks and the zip code is 91361. Retrofit requirements for the city of Thousand Oaks are here.
