Homeowner’s Guide to Earthquake Safety


The Homeowner’s Guide to Earthquake Safety is required by state law to be given to buyers along with forms filled out by sellers that disclose typical earthquake vulnerabilities in homes. First published in 1992 and last updated in 2005, the Commission is embarking on an update. A subcommittee chaired by Commissioner Cindy Silva along with Commissioners Ivan Wong and Randy Goodwin are leading this effort. They expect to convert the guide to color, reduce its length, and improve its readability.

The 2005 Guides are still available in English and Spanish and will be replaced with the new version when published.
