The Right to Housing of Choice
The picture above is of apartments referred to as "stack and packs". Social engineering is taking place to reduce or prohibit single family dwellings designed to transition people from being home owners to being perpetual renters. At TRTK, we hope to educate people on this growing trend and the impact it and other codes and ordinances have on communities.
Many communities have implemented the International Property Maintenance Code (IPMC) which is approved along side long standing International Electrical, Plumbing or Fire codes etc. without the people understanding the magnitude of the code represents to the property rights and privacy.
101.4 Severability. If a section, subsection, sentence, clause or phrase of this code is, for any reason, held to be UNCONSTITUTIONAL, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this code.
104.3 Right of entry. Where it is necessary to make an inspection to enforce the provisions of this code, or whenever the code official has reasonable cause to believe that there exists in a structure or upon a premises a condition in violation of this code, the code official is authorized to enter the structure or premises at reasonable times to inspect or perform the duties imposed by this code, provided that if such structure or premises is occupied the code official shall present credentials to the occupant and request entry. If such structure or premises is unoccupied, the code official shall first make a reasonable effort to locate the owner or other person having charge or control of the structure or premises and request entry. If entry is refused, the code official shall have recourse to the remedies provided by law to secure entry.
