MAKING A PROPERTY OR BUILDING COMPLAINT
We rely on complaints from the public to identify potential violations of our housing, land use, construction, and other codes. We investigate your complaint and determine whether a property owner violated our rules.

Your complaint does not always lead to an enforcement action. When we investigate, sometimes the owner has already fixed the problem or we discover that the owner has done nothing wrong. Sometimes we may not be able to see the violation.

WHAT INFORMATION WE NEED
The property address of the potential violation
If our inspectors cannot find a potential violation, we cannot investigate or act to correct it.  If you’re unsure of the address, give us the address of the property next door or a description of the location.

Your name and number
We use your contact information in case we have follow-up questions and to tell you about the outcome of your complaint. If you choose, you can submit a complaint anonymously or request your identity remain confidential.

Description of the possible violation
Where is it on the property?
What is it?
How long has it been happening?
