WE ARE "FIMA" CERTIFIED

Did you feel that?

The Los Angeles Times reported that the Los Angeles City Council signed into effect the nation’s toughest earthquake laws to date and Orange County may follow suite.

These laws are designed to reinforce wooden apartment complexes built atop carports and brittle concrete buildings in which over 65 people have perished in past L.A. earthquakes.  The laws are strict, and it is estimated that 15,000 buildings will require renovation. This may just be the drought-quenching rain California real estate investors have been looking for.

Think we can all hear the horrified shrieks of income property owners everywhere; after all, they’ve fought City Hall on this retrofitting for two decades.

Under the new law, owners must retrofit the wooden apartment complexes (of which the city has already identified 13,500 in need of this upgrade) within seven years, and the concrete buildings (1,500 of which have been identified) within 25 years.  What’s worse for property owners? The city expects them to foot the bill, which is estimated to range from $60,000 to $130,000 for the wooden apartments and millions of dollars for the concrete building rehabs.

Earthquake Safety at Home and Business

Unlike hurricanes and some other natural hazards, earthquakes strike suddenly and without warning.

Nevertheless, if you live in an area at risk for earthquakes, there are things that you can do to reduce the chances that you or other members of your household will be injured, that your property will be damaged, or that your home life will be unduly disrupted by an earthquake.

These things all fit under the term preparedness, because to be effective, they must be done before earthquakes occur.

Preparing for earthquakes involves (1) learning what people should do before, during, and after earthquakes; and (2) doing or preparing to do those things now, before the next quake.  We will assist you in obtaining the necessary permits if needed.
