Attention Landlords!

If you have rental property that falls within the City of Sacramento limits, your units may now be subject to a new "Rental Housing Inspection" ordinance. This is a pilot program, and landlords who do not comply with minimum standards may face civil and/or criminal penalties! YIKES!...not sure if there are ramifications for homes outside the City limits (areas like Carmichael, Orangevale, Fair Oaks, etc. that are in County jurisdiction).

You can read up on this by visiting the City of Sacramento's Code Enforcement Department website here. For a list of inspection guidelines, click here. For further information about the Residential Rental Housing Inspection Pilot Program, you can contact the Sacramento Housing and Dangerous Buildings Division at 916-808-RENT or e-mail

I always understood that insurance was protection against something that might or might not happen (e.g. fire, theft), and assurance was protection against something that was bound to happen sooner or later (e.g. death).
