Period of construction of private dwelling
Status: This standard was approved as a departmental standard on March 24, 2016.
Period of construction refers to the period in time during which the building or dwelling was originally constructed.
This refers to the period in which the building was completed, not the time of any later remodeling, additions or conversions.
For properties having multiple residential structures, this refers to the period in which the most recent structure was completed.
Private dwelling refers to a separate set of living quarters with a private entrance either from outside the building or from a common hall, lobby, vestibule or stairway inside the building. The entrance to the dwelling must be one that can be used without passing through the living quarters of some other person or group of persons.
