Enforcement Process

  • An Inspector will contact your landlord or agent to advise of any defects found and enquire what action will be taken to complete repairs.
  • The tenant will be contacted by a Property Standards Inspector to arrange a suitable time for an inspection to confirm the deficiencies when there is no indication the problem is being corrected.
  • After the Inspector confirms the deficiencies, an Order will be sent to the owner or agent listing deficiencies to be repaired within a prescribed time.
  • An inspection will be made after the compliance date to confirm if the repairs have been done, if complete the file is closed.
  • Where the owner fails to resolve the deficiencies in the Order and does not appeal the Order, the Order becomes final and binding. The City may then commence legal action.
