1 The purpose of the program is to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of those living in or near rental housing through the participation of owners, tenants, the city, and the community. This program is designed to give property owners the benefit of knowing if their rental units meet the minimum safety standards as set forth in the locally adopted building and life safety codes. Prospective and current tenants will benefit by knowing that their unit has been voluntarily inspected for safety code compliance. Additionally, ongoing inspections will help to preserve the quality of Bozeman's neighborhoods and the available rental housing. All properties that meet the minimum safety standards will receive a certificate of completion and be added to the safe rental unit list on the City of Bozeman website as an Approved property having completed the inspection process. This certification will last for three years. The scope of the inspection program will be limited to single family apartments and efficiency unit rentals located within the Bozeman City Limits. Inspections must be conducted every three years in order to maintain an "approved" status on the City Of Bozeman Safe Rental Unit List. Property owners/managers and/or tenants are responsible to call for and schedule the voluntary safety inspections with the City of Bozeman Fire Department.

3 CITY OF BOZEMAN FIRE DEPARTMENT AND BUILDING DIVISION VOLUNTARY RENTAL UNIT SAFETY INSPECTION INITIATIVE 1. Introduction The City of Bozeman is establishing a Voluntary Rental Unit Safety Inspection Initiative. The program is intended to provide prospective renters with information on rental properties and units that have been voluntarily inspected for health and safety standards on the basis of accepted community safety guidelines. These inspections will be at no cost and conducted, in most cases, by the Bozeman Fire Department. 2. Purpose The purpose of the program is to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of those living in or near rental housing through the participation of owners, tenants, the City, and the community. This program is designed to give property owners the benefit of knowing if their rental units meet the minimum safety standards as set forth in the locally adopted building and life safety codes. Prospective and current tenants will benefit by knowing that their unit has been voluntarily inspected for safety code compliance. Additionally, ongoing inspections will help to preserve the quality of Bozeman's neighborhoods and the available rental housing. All properties that meet the minimum safety standards will receive a certificate of completion and be added to the safe rental unit list on the City of Bozeman website as an Approved property having completed the inspection process. This certification will last for three years. 3. Scope The scope of the inspection program is limited to single family apartments and efficiency unit rentals located within the Bozeman city limits. The program does not include motels, hotels, dormitories, bed and breakfasts, vacation rentals and boarding homes as they currently fall under other code sections already inspected by the fire and building departments regularly. Units to be approved must contain all facilities required to be included in a residential dwelling unit, i.e. kitchen, bathroom, designated sleeping areas, hot and cold potable water and heating equipment.

4 4. Procedure Inspections: Inspections must be conducted every three years in order to maintain an "approved" status on the City of Bozeman safe rental unit list. Property owners/managers and/or tenants are responsible to call for and schedule the voluntary safety inspections with the City of Bozeman Fire Department. No inspections will be conducted unless the owner and/or tenant or a designated representative (over 18 years old) is present. Standard: All inspections will be conducted using the current versions of the locally adopted fire and life safety and building codes. Using these standards will help to consistently identify health, life safety, and routine maintenance concerns in existing structures. Violations: If safety and health code violations are discovered, property owners will have 30 days to make repairs. Other than potentially dangerous health and life safety conditions, correcting the violations may be done on a voluntary basis. If the property owner/manager chooses not to complete the voluntary repairs within the allotted time, the unit will not be added to the list of approved safe rental units. Potentially dangerous Health and life safety conditions must be corrected immediately. Violations subject to mandatory corrections will include; unsafe electrical, unsafe gas fueled appliances, inadequate means of egress, missing or not working smoke detectors, inadequate protection from the weather, lack of potable water, lack of adequate heating system, lack of an approved sewage disposal system and unsafe stairs and safety railings. In the above cases a Notice of Violation will be issued requesting the item be addressed immediately. If the rental unit has not been approved and certified within 30 days from the date the Notice of Violation was issued the file and application will be closed. In order to resume the certification process a new application must be submitted for the rental unit. Note: Extensions to the 30 day re-inspection period may be issued in 15 day increments by the City of Bozeman Chief Building Official or Fire Marshal. Certification: Once a unit or multi-unit building passes inspection a Certificate of Completion will be issued and the unit will be added to the list of approved safe rental units. This list will be made available to the public and will be posted on the City of Bozeman web site.

5 5. Fees Inspection Fees There will be no fee for the Voluntary Rental Unit Safety Inspection Initiative.
