In September 2018, Senate Bill No. 721 (SB 721) was approved by Governor Jerry Brown, requiring the inspection and repair of balconies, decks, and stairs that rely in whole or in substantial part on wood structural support (exterior elevated elements) in multi-family residential buildings with three or more dwelling units. This bill, commonly referred to as the “deck and balcony inspection” bill, went into effect on January 1, 2019. Provided is a synopsis, highlighting important actions and dates that California building owners should be aware of that pertain to the bill.
