With a growing problem of poorly regulated development in Philly causing adjacent rowhome collapses, HAPCO Philadelphia sees the passage of House Bill 255 as a good development.

The city’s Licenses and Inspections Department has been plagued with short staffing, resignations, and recruiting troubles and it’s hoped HB 255 will mean more money to hire more inspectors to investigate and cite blighted properties and reign in unlicensed gentrification.

HP’s Mission Statement includes our devotion to reversing the spread of blight in Philadelphia.  Many HP members have committed to rehabbing dilapidated and sheriff’s sale properties into affordable rental housing.

It’s another one of the many reasons small, independent, and Mom and Pop rental and investment property owners need to join HAPCO Philadelphia!
