Re: 1933 Riley Act/1935 UBC

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Fred,

Thank you for the lead. I'd searched the ca.gov pages "Riley Act" but had no success. I appreciate the lead. I have done some calling around, and I understand that the City of Burbank actually has a copy of the 1937 UBC that I can review. As the building in question was built 1937/38, I think this will be very fruitful.. I've also learned that all UBCs from 1927 through 60 or 64 are available on CD from ICBO... or is it now ICC? For anyone doing historic code research, it might be worth the $245 considering the search capabilities.

Again thanks.

California Law, put a checkmark on Health and Safety Code and search for
section 19100

This describes exemptions related to the Riley Act for wood frame bldgs two
stories or less and biplexes and single-family dwellings of all construction
in unincorporated areas. However, many counties enhance their requirements
for such buildings beyond this statewide minimum. Some of this was added in
1995, such as subsection (e). FYI,
