The BBAA conducts an initial inspection to make sure the B&B meets our organizational standards. If the property does not meet the inspection criteria and you do no agree to implement the required changes you will not be accepted. There is no charge for the inspection and unless there are complaints voiced to the BBAA we will not require an additional inspection. We do however reserve the right to conduct additional inspections if we feel it is appropriate. We provide an inspection criteria prior to the inspection and should the inspection detect something which does not meet our criteria you will be given a chance to make the required changes and submit evidence that the changes were implemented before you are an official member.
