Tips on selling mixed-use property
Mixed-use facilities don’t go out of favor because of what they provide the individual: residential, commercial, cultural, institutional, and industrial functions rolled into one, where the individual can live, work, and play without crossing the street or driving a car.
If you’re selling a mixed-use development in Los Angeles, make sure you meet the following Requirements
For mixed-use facilities with residential spaces:
- Smoke detectors
Section 91.8603 of the Los Angeles Municipal Code requires all residential properties, including condominiums and apartments, to have smoke detectors installed on the ceiling or wall of rooms used for sleeping and rooms with a central location. Detectors must also be installed in basements. For condominiums and apartments, smoke detectors must be hard-wired and have battery backup.
- Security lighting and locks
Los Angeles mandates that apartment buildings provide ample security to its residents by having security lighting and locks installed.Exterior lighting must be installed in the following areas:
- Recreational spaces
- Parking areas
- Entrance of each unit
Interior lighting, on the other hand, must be installed in common and service rooms as well as parking garages.
Doors and windows that provide entry to each dwelling must be installed with locks.
