What are the codes in Georgia (the US state, not the country) regarding stair treads and risers in a townhome or condo? My daughter is looking to purchase and the stairs seem too steep. The condo was built in 2005.
I'm asking because my daughters house that she is signing a contract on today, the stairs are now tiled. It seems really steep and my shoe size is an eight. Putting my foot down on the "step" is 9".
I'm having a problem coming up with the correct building code that it must be. The condo was built in 2004. One realtor said to me the stairs are not up to code, but another has said differently. The stairs will be carpeted, but obviously will need to be fixed and I need to know what they should be before signing papers today. The seller does not want to fix anything, but I know you can't sell a house if doesn't comply with Georgia codes aren't in order.
