Rejuvenation of old infrastructure that lacked funding

Making integration into Calgary easy by following due diligence, professional standards, approved processes and compliance in an transparent manor. Informational Asymmetry! The person paying for the service can't always take on the all of the risk from a lower position of power. A warranty of completing a transaction in good faith.

What will change for Calgarians if we solve this problem? (Measurable)

"Help bringing all homes up to current home builder standards.... I don't know how long this would take, but I am assuming an ongoing process of improvement!
This means that we can the use the R2 zoned land to the best of it's ability. Making homes self sustainable on a personal level, therefore being able to rent out legal places to stay. Helping stimulating local economy in my neighborhood. Like the landscaper that lives behind me. "

How could we make it happen with technology or data? (Attainable)

"Open source data sharing. Has the house ever had an insurance claim for water? How was the house fixed? Who then inspects the house? If there was a fire in my house... any person in my basement would die if the fire closed off the stairs. (how the flip do I fix that?!?)How is this allowed?
Permit accessibility in layman's terms and professional standards.
I want to make homes self sustainable... How? Data sources on the hot and cold spots of the neighborhood, use wind or solar power, will those sustain the house on it's own and therefore give back to the grid. Cost? ROI? preventing Scope creep!!"
