Minimum Housing Code

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

The Residential Dwellings section of the City's Minimum Housing Code, Chapter 11, requires homeowners and landlords to maintain their homes/ properties to a minimum standard. Regardless of whether housing is owner- or tenant-occupied, it must meet the minimum standards.

The code states that structures must be maintained in a condition that makes the housing premises safe, sanitary, and fit for human habitation.

City Code Compliance Inspectors check property to ensure structures meet the minimum standards outlined in the code. Violations may range from repairable situations such as broken windows to major structural integrity issues.

There are nearly 131,000 residential addresses in Greensboro city limits.

Review the status of current Minimum Housing Code cases

The City has transitioned to a new code compliance management system (linked to above). The new software, which works best when accessed by Chrome and Safari browsers, allows you to view the status of code and zoning violations by address. The previous code compliance system is no longer accessible.
