Save the Date: Join Us for Our Seattle Home Fairs

Learn about rental housing rules, tree protection, permits, inspections, and more

Join the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections (SDCI) for our Seattle Home Fairs on Saturday, January 30, 2021 and Saturday, February 6, 2021. This year we're going virtual! Our free home fairs will include helpful information about landslide preparation, earthquake retrofits, tree regulations, and rental housing rules. You'll also have an opportunity to ask our experts about our permitting process, building and electrical inspections, soil erosion prevention, and code violations. This is your chance to get expert advice about your specific project, rental housing, or housing maintenance standards.

For the best Home Fair experience, please download and install Webex and join the meeting through the application on your computer or device. The browser-based version of Webex does not include all features, including the raise hand feature that you will need to ask your questions. Click on the links below for more information about each session and details on how to join the meetings.

Each day has several meetings happening at the same time. These meetings are stand-alone events. This is similar to a conference that has several presentations happening at the same time in different rooms. The events on January 30 start with a presentation. The events on February 6 are drop-in Q&A without a formal presentation.

Join us on January 30 to learn about the following topics:

10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (RSVP appreciated)

1:00 - 3:00 p.m. (RSVP appreciated)

During these presentations, you'll have a chance to hear from our expert staff on some of our most requested topics. After the presentation, you can ask questions specific to your project, property, or situation.

Still have questions, or just want to drop in and ask about your project? Our February 6 Seattle Home Fair is a drop-in Q&A format covering:

10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (RSVP appreciated)

    1. Electrical inspections
      Ask questions to help you plan your project and successfully pass your electrical inspection.
    2. Site inspections/soil erosion issues
      Ask questions about what site inspections you may need for your project and how to prevent soil erosion on your site.
    3. Code compliance
      Ask about junk storage, car parking, tree cutting, weeds and vegetation, rental housing standards, and similar topics.

1:00 - 3:00 p.m. (RSVP appreciated)

Each of these sessions offers you the chance to get an expert answer to your questions to help you successfully complete your project, pass your inspection, and understand our permitting process and regulations.

With something for everyone, you won't want to miss these events!
