Webinar Recording: Understanding California SB 721 Balcony Inspection Requirements


View a recording of WJE's recent webinar, Understanding California SB 721 Balcony Inspection Requirements.

In September 2018, Senate Bill No. 721 was approved in California, establishing inspection and repair requirements for exterior elevated elements of multi-unit residential buildings with three or more dwelling units. This bill is commonly referred to as the "deck and balcony inspection" bill, and it went into effect on January 1, 2019. 

Since the bill's approval, WJE has received a variety of questions from owners and property managers of multi-unit residential buildings. 

In this complimentary one-hour webinar, Associate Principals Kelly Cobeen and Ann Harrer address the three main questions we have received to date: 

  • What is included in this bill?
  • Why was it passed/needed?
  • Does it apply to my building?
