    Why is this measure important?

    Ensures safety and health issues are maintained in the unit. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires Bernalillo County Housing Department (BCHD) to define life-threatening conditions and to notify the owner or the family (whichever is responsible) of the corrections required. The responsible party must correct life-threatening conditions within 24 hours of BCHD notification (mandated by HUD: LIFE-THREATENING CONDITIONS [24 CFR 982.404(a)]).

    Number of complete inspections divided by scheduled inspections

    by #174f77

    Inspection reports - tracked by degree of violation (each inspection); failed units are followed up by the inspector that reported the violation to ensure it is remedied. If an owner fails to correct life-threatening conditions as required by BCHD, BCHD will enforce the Housing Quality Standards (HQS) in accordance with HUD requirements.

    The following are a few examples of what are considered life-threatening conditions: Plumbing, gas or fuel leaks, electrical problems, absence of a working heating system not in service, obstacles that prevent safe entrance or exit from the unit, absence of a functioning toilet in the unit.

    Housing inspections are being conducted using remote video inspections.
