Yes. Everyone is entitled to live in a safe and healthy building. It is strongly recommended that the landlord be notified immediately and given the opportunity to repair the problem prior to contacting Code Enforcement. In the event the landlord does not take action, reporting substandard building conditions to Code Enforcement will get the ball rolling to get these conditions corrected. Fear of repercussions is commonly heard for not reporting substandard conditions in rentals. Complainants anonymity are protected by law. Names and personal information will not be released.
