Property Inspection Prioritization (“PIP”) Tool DISCLAIMER.


Important Notices and Disclaimers: By accessing or using the Property Inspection Prioritization (“PIP”) tool and by clicking “I agree”, you agree to the terms and conditions of this agreement.  Publication of this tool is for the sole purpose of supplementing the decision making of Authorities Having Jurisdiction (“AHJs”) with a limited set of risk factors that an AHJ may consider when determining the prioritization of property inspections.  The results presented by this tool are based on your input and may not reflect the actual relative risk profile for the properties entered into the tool.  The particular risk factors used in this tool were developed based on input of approximately 100 AHJs from various jurisdictions across the United States and Canada and are intentionally limited to make the tool simple to use.  The risk factors are not: (i) developed based on any code, standard, law or regulation; (ii) are not aimed at addressing any particularized or identifiable risk; and (iii) are not comprehensive and may not reflect the actual relative risk factors applicable to any particular property or properties.
