This week I am going to update you all on what is going on in the Triangle with respect to rental inspection and one other issue:

Raleigh:  It appears that Raleigh is maintaining the status quo on PROP. There was a proposal to greatly increase penalties, and reduce chances to remove or reduce strikes, but it appears to be on hold. There have even been rumors that PROP enforcement been suspended.

Durham: Durham begun inspecting rental homes on July 1, 2012 under their PRIP program. They are inspecting zones 1 and 2 of their map that you can see by clicking here. Current reports are that the Durham PRIP inspectors are having difficulty gaining access to the majority of the rental homes. Durham Neighborhood Improvement Services continues to request that all eligible rental owners self certify.

Wendel: Wendel is close to instituting an inspection program of its own.

Wake County Apartment Association: The Wake County Apartment Association has suspended its meetings because it does not have a director to plan and run the meetings. After many years T. Furlow of Deaton Investments has stepped down. Any rental owners looking for a comparably focused group should visit the Independent Rental Owners meeting of the the Triangle Apartment Association. Currently, they are meeting every other month, but this may change in 2013.
