Santa Rosa Valley Retrofit (Code Compliance) Requirements When Selling

Most Realtors in the Santa Rosa Valley 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 Santa Rosa Valley and anywhere in the county of Ventura, 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.

Homes in Santa Rosa Valley, upon sale, do require working smoke detectors in each bedroom and bedroom hallway, and on each floor. Smoke detectors can be either battery type or hard wired type. Seismic EQ valve on gas meter is not required. Carbon monoxide detector on each level at least. Hot Water heater tank must be double strapped. Tankless water heaters do not need to be strapped. Low flow toilets and showerheads in each bathroom.
