If the unit fails an inspection, the deficiencies must be corrected before the next inspection appointment. For new contracts, the follow-up inspection is scheduled as soon as possible. If you are present at the time of the failed initial inspection, you may schedule the follow-up with the inspector at that time. Owners are usually responsible for correcting deficiencies for new contract inspections.
For annual inspections, the party responsible for correcting deficiencies will be stated on the inspection report. The follow-up inspection will usually be scheduled no more than 21-28 days after the initial inspection, to allow you, and the tenant, adequate time to make the necessary corrections to the unit.
