Industry NewsNew inspection forms for City and County of Sacramento rental inspection programs
The City and County of Sacramento unveiled new common forms to use when conducting interior and exterior inspections to comply with their rental housing inspection ordinances. In the past, the city and county had different forms which caused confusion. RHA encouraged city and county officials to develop standard forms that could be used in either the City of Sacramento or the unicorporated areas of the County of Sacramento.
The new inspection forms include an exterior inspection form and an inspection form. Rental owners and property managers should begin using the new forms immediately. A signed copy should be provided to renters and a copy needs to be retained by the owner or manager. The forms do not need to be submitted to either the city or county government, but must be available during a possible audit inspection.
RHA offers the forms at no charge.

Stop the Clog! Sacramento Area Sewer District asks for help with Fats, Oils and Grease (F.O.G.) problem at apartment communities
The majority of sewer backups and overflows at apartment communities are caused by fats, oils and grease poured down the drain by residents. These sewer blockages can lead to costly repairs and fines for environmental damage. RHA is working with the Sacramento Area Sewer District to educate apartment owners, managers and residents about this problem. To learn how you can support the Stop the Clog! campaign, click here.
Featured Events & ClassesRHA offers two new certification courses that satisfy County of Sacramento rental housing inspection ordinance requirements
The County of Sacramento requires anyone who conducts property inspections required under its Rental Housing Inspection Ordinance to receive training approved by County officials. Rental owners currently are exempt from this requirement, but that could change. In addition, every five years a re-certification course must be taken. Since many RHA members completed the initial training in 2009, they will need to complete additional training this year.
RHA is offering two new courses that satisfy both the initial certification as well as five-year re-certification requirements. If you only inspect single-family, duplex and triplex properties, enroll in How to Conduct Single-family Property Inspections. If you inspect multifamily properties (4 units or more) or if you inspect both single-family and multifamily properties, enroll in How to Conduct Multifamily Property Inspections. The registration fee for either course is $39.
See the Calendar for the dates and times of upcoming classes.
