“3R Reports” are the reports of the residential building record.  The seller must provide these to the buyer prior to transfer of ownership. These reports detail the authorized occupancy of a property as well as the permits used in construction. It only states that the permits where issues and does not verify that the work was done to “code”.  Plumbing and electrical permits are excluded.  “3R Reports” may or may not be accurate and buyers are urged to verify information contained within with the Department of Building Inspection (415-558-6081) and have qualified inspectors verify any information that hints at being incomplete, inaccurate, or cause for concern.
