The Property Standards by-law relates to all buildings regardless of use. If a tenant feels the unit they are occupying is unsafe, an inspection of the building can be performed by a qualified building inspector to determine compliance with the by-law. Problems such as broken windows, plumbing, electrical and structural are some examples of complaints most commonly recognized.
Before contacting the City about a possible breach of the Property Standards By-Law, notify your landlord about possible deficiencies within your rental unit. Give a reasonable time frame that you would expect the deficiencies to be corrected.
