Residential Code

The Housing and Building Standards provide safety and aesthetic guidelines for residential and non-commercial buildings. Click here to review the residential code (Chapter 152: Housing and Building Standards).

If your property has been cited and you would like to request additional time, you may be able to submit a work plan. The purpose of the Work Plan Extension is to establish time lines toward the correction of individual violations cited. If requested, Neighborhood Code is willing to assist with specifics by scheduling an on-site meeting between the owner and/or representative and a Code Officer.

To file a complaint about a residential property, you can call 311.
