Boston Rental Inspections (9 Responses)

The Boston city council has passed and recently upheld an ordinance that requires rental properties in the city to be inspected every few years whether or not a complaint has been made about the property. This seems to me like a gross invasion of privacy for tenants and an unwarranted increase in the size of the city government. I realize this is city of Boston issue but I have heard that other towns in the state might want to use the new Boston rental inspection ordinance as a blueprint for their own inspection schemes. I wonder if something could or should be done at the state level to make these types of inspections illegal. If I were still renting property in Boston I would not want government inspectors in my house without a reason.
