Those buying and selling homes in Los Alamos could be in for a more streamlined and timely process when it comes to home inspections.

In addition to the economic development presentation given by the LACDC, council discussed the impact of House Bill 219 on the Los Alamos Building Division and how the legislation affects the issuance of local building permits.

Currently, the Los Alamos Building division processes construction applications, provides plan review, issues building permits and provides inspection services for general construction work, while electrical and plumbing/mechanical inspection services have been provide the by the state construction Industries Division.

The authority for the Los Alamos activities is provided in the state municipal code, which provides general authority for municipalities to adopt a building code and section 3-18-6, which provides inspection authority to municipalities.

In 2007 the New Mexico Legislature passed and the governor signed into law HB 219, amending section 3-17-6 by consolidating some of the provisions relating to plan review, permitting and inspecting.
