Minimum Housing Code
The City of Charlotte Housing Code requires homeowners and landlords to maintain their homes/ properties to a minimum standard. The code may also be applied to abandoned commercial structures.
Code inspectors check dwellings to ensure the structure meets the minimum standards prescribed by the ordinance. Violations can range from repairable situations, such as broken windows, to major structural integrity issues. Based on the estimated cost of repairs to the structure, inspectors will issue an order to either repair or demolish a structure. If demolition of a structure is ordered, the owner has the opportunity to make repairs.
