Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The text will be very useful to any residential and/or commercial codes department...Even though the author was covering complicated legal issues, I found the text and the explanations to be clear and easy to follow and matched perfectly with the code sections they are related to. The introductory chapter is particularly helpful to a new inspector who may not have any prior field experience or whose jurisdiction is just adopting the ICC code. The Author has really simplified the task of the code official by providing an easy to understand legal model directly related to all aspects of due process and search and seizure law." - William H. Penn Jr., Metro Davidson Co., Nashville, TN
