Are You Prepared to Fix Your Own Sidewalks?


Oct 27, 2011

From the, “L.A. considers shifting sidewalk repair responsibility to property owners.” Written by Rick Orlov this Tuesday October 19th 2011, the article presents an interesting situation.  The city of Los Angeles is debating on shifting sidewalk damage responsibility and legal liability to property owners rather than the city.


“Under current city and state law, property owners are already responsible for some sidewalk damage, but the city takes care of tree roots - one of the biggest problems. One of the proposals before two council committees on Wednesday would close that loophole.

Homeowners also would take legal liability for trip-and-fall claims filed because of damaged sidewalks. Along with that was the possibility of stepped- up enforcement, with inspectors hitting the streets to check sidewalks, write citations and order repairs to begin within 90 days.”
