  1. Thank you for putting this information out in writing to the agents. Over the past several years we have sold homes in Sunland-Tujunga and have always ensured that these retrofit requirements were complied. Once in a while we observed inspectors who thought otherwise so glad to have this specific email in writing to hand or forward to anyone as needed.
