If you are concerned about a non-emergency issue, you will need to first contact your landlord. Your landlord should have seven (7) days to address the complaint upon notification. If left unresolved, please contact the Code Enforcement Officer to file a formal complaint to the city. Concerns regarding significant health, safety, or general welfare issues, a tenant may contact the Code Enforcement Officer to schedule a complaint based inspection.
Complaint based inspections are of no charge to landlords or tenants. To learn more about how to file a complaint, please visit our website:
Certificates must be readily available to prospective tenants and current residing tenants by the property owner and/or landlord at all times. If you are unable to receive or view a certificate by a landlord or leasing agent, please contact the Code Enforcement Officer.
