SECTION 1.01.06: Maintenance

(a) All buildings or structures, both existing and new, and all parts thereof shall be maintained in a safe
and sanitary condition. All devices or safeguards, which are required by this Code in a building or
structure when constructed, altered, or repaired, shall be maintained on good working order.

SECTION 1.01.07: Insanitary, Unsafe, Hazardous, or Dangerous Sites

(a) The land or site upon which will be constructed any building or structure, or any ancillary or auxillary
facility thereto, shall be sanitary , hygienic or safe. Where the land or site is polluted, insanitary,
unhygienic, unsafe, or hazardous, conditions contributing to or causing its being polluted, insanitary,
unhygienic, unsafe, or hazardous shall be reasonably improved or corrected, or proper remedial
measures shall be prescribed or incorporated in the design or construction of the building or structure in
accordance with the provisions of this Code.

(b) The land or site upon which be constructed a building of structure or any ancillary or accessory facility
thereto, for use of human habitation or abode, shall be at a safe distance from streamers or bodies of
water and/source of air considered to be polluted, volcano or volcanic site, and building or structure
considered to be a potential source of fire or explosion, such as ammunitions factory or dump and
storage place for highly inflammable material.

SECTION 1.01.08: Dangerous and Ruinous Buildings or Structures

(a) General. - The provisions of this Code shall apply to all dangerous buildings, as herein defined, which
are now in existence or which may hereafter be constructed, as well as to ruinous buildings as defined in
Article 482 of the Civil Code of the Philippines. chan robles virtual law library

(b) Dangerous Buildings Defined. - Dangerous buildings are those which are structurally unsafe or not
provided with safe egrees, or which constitute a fire hazard, or are otherwise dangerous to human life, or
which in relation to existing use constitute a hazard to safety or health or public welfare, by reason of
inadequate maintenance, dilapidation, obsolescence, fire hazard, or abandonment; or which otherwise
contribute to the pollution of the site or the community to an intolerable degree. Any building or structure
which has any or all of the conditions or defects hereinafter described, or conditions or defects similar
thereto, shall be deemed to be dangerous building: Provided, That such conditions or defect exists to the
extent that the life, health, property, or safety of the public or its occupant are endangered:

(1) Whenever any door, aisle, passageway, stairway, or other means of exist is not of sufficient width or
size, or is not so arranged as to provide safe and adequate means of exit in case of fire or panic;

(2) Whenever the stress in any materials member or portion thereof, due to all dead and live loads is
more than one and one-half times the working stresses or stresses allowed in this Code for new building
of similar structure, purpose, or location: Provided, That in determining working stress, the working stress
method of analysis shall be used, and in the case of engineering "overstress", the ultimate strength
method;

(3) Whenever any portion thereof has been damaged by fire, earthquake, wind, flood, or by any other
cause, to such an extent that the structural strength or the stability thereof is materially less than it was
before such catastrophe and is less than the minimum requirements of this Code for new buildings of
similar structures, purpose, or location;

(4) Whenever any portion or member or appurtenance thereof is likely to fall, or to become detached or
dislodged, or to collapse and thereby injure persons or damage property;

(5) Whenever any portion or member or any appurtenance or ornamentation of the exterior thereof is not of
such sufficient strength or stability, or is not so anchored, attached, or fastened - place so as to be
capable of resisting a wind pressure of one-half of that specified in this Code for new buildings of similar
structure; purpose, or location without exceeding the working stresses permitted for such buildings;

(6) Whenever any portion thereon has wracked, warped, buckled, or settled to such an extent that walls or
other structural portions have materially less resistance to winds or earthquake than is required in the
case similar new construction;

(7) Whenever the building or structure, or any portion thereof, because of: (i) dilapidation, deterioration, or
delay; (ii) faulty construction; (iii) the removal, movement, or instability of any portion of the ground
necessary for the purpose of supporting such building; (iv) the deterioration, decay, or inadequacy of its
foundation; or (v) any other cause, is likely to partially or completely collapse;

(8) Whenever, for any reason, the building or structure, or any portion thereof, is manifestly unsafe for the
purpose for which it is being used;

(9) Whenever the exterior walls or other vertica structural members list, lean, or buckle to such an extent
that the structure falls within the condition described in the preceding subparagraph (2), above, or
whenever any portion thereof suffers a material reduction of the fire and weather resistance qualities of
characteristics required by this Code for newly constructed buildings of like area, height, and occupancy in
the same location;
