Façade inspection requirements

Under a regulation, when an engineer’s inspection finds that a façade is generally safe but in need of repairs, the repairs must be completed within six months. After receiving extensive feedback and in light of the pandemic, L&I is deferring enforcement of the six month limit with respect to façade inspections until January 1, 2022.

This means, until January 1, 2022, the required façade inspections must still be performed, but the results should be submitted to L&I on this earlier version of the Summary Report Form and in accordance with the instructions on the form.

Refer to the letter that was sent out to Philadelphia homeowners for more details. For step by step instructions on submitting façade inspection reports through our online portal, refer to the how-to guide.

If you have questions, please contact facadereports@phila.gov.
