When does a building get condemned? What happens when it is condemned?
A condemnation happens when a structure is deemed dangerous or unfit for human habitation due to fire hazards, unsanitary conditions, severe rodent and pest infestation, lack of basic facilities, faulty construction or dilapidation. An inspector will order the structure vacated, sometimes immediately, but usually after a short compliance period has expired and the occupants are given 1 to 30 days notice to find alternative shelter. If principal violations are corrected prior to the vacation date, the order to vacate will be lifted. If principal violations are corrected after the vacate date, once corrected the dwelling can be reoccupied.
