Q: Is it true that I have to inspect my parapets?

JA: Great question, and right on time. Starting in January 2024, all buildings with parapets fronting the public right-of-way, regardless of height, must have their parapets inspected to identify and correct hazards. 

The only exceptions to this new law are detached 1- or 2-family homes or buildings with a fence or other barrier preventing access to the exterior wall.

The good news? Jaffa Permit Service will be offering Parapet inspections under the supervision of our in-house architect, Jeff Akerman. You can reach out to the head of our Permit Services, Chase, with any questions or to schedule your inspection.
