DeKalb County Inefficient Plumbing Fixtures Replacement Plan
Affects transactions of every property in unincorporated areas of the county on which there is a building constructed before January 1, 1993.
The ordinance is to require that all plumbing fixtures on the property be certified as “low-flow” or water-conserving fixtures before the buyer of the property can receive water service. If a qualifying property does not contain low-flow fixtures, then the fixtures must be replaced or retrofitted to be low-flow (hence, the term “retrofit at resale”). This ordinance is for residential properties.
Georgia Association of REALTORS® attorney Seth Weissman has prepared a white paper explaining the ordinance, and the GAR Forms Committee has developed a disclosure exhibit that can be used by agents involved in a transaction in DeKalb County. DeKalb County has also promulgated several forms.
