Public buildings, buildings open to the public, and even rental properties are subject to many different building codes. Building codes are laws passed by local governments to protect the safety of the public from specific risks.
If the owner of a building subject to a building code is found to be in violation of the code, they can face stiff penalties and fines.
Furthermore, if you are injured in or on a property subject to a building code, and the property or building is in violation of the code, you may be able to recover money damages for your injuries.
