Housing Codes

I am in the process of preparing guidelines for rental units and would like to review codes dealing with housing standards. Are there any site available where I could access the appropriate codes?

RE: Housing Codes

H : You might try access to Canada Mortgage and Housing - CMHC Housing Technology Library in Ottawa Ontario Canada . It is called CHIP - Canadian Housing Information Program . The is not much that they don't have either at nominal cost or free for the mailing. They also catalogue all the publications CMHC has compiled or done over 40 years. One thing I know they have is a good technical definition on what is losely known as "Minimum Occupancy Standards" I do not know the web URL but search on CMHC will do it or on"CHIP" CFPeng.

RE: Housing Codes

Please look at the code discussion on the BCDG. They address all building codes in the USA. The link is at:
