Health Code Violations: Is Your Landlord Breaking the Law?

in Legal Issues on by

Mold can cause illness and is therefore a serious health violation when present in apartment buildings.

The apartment you end up in might not be the one of your dreams (subway tile in the kitchen, a large soaking tub, and unobstructed views of the city), but at the very least you can expect it to be clean and safe. Your landlord is responsible for keeping every rental property they own in a habitable condition, which means that each unit should be completely fit for tenants to live in.

If there are issues afoot that you suspect could be health code violations, you have the right to contact a local health agency to help rectify them.

Most Common Types of Health Code Violations

There are certain kinds of health code violations that would cause a tenant to file a complaint to the city. These include:

Pests

If you are seeing any signs of a mouse, rat, roach, bed bug, or other pest infestation, it’s cause for calling the city.

No Running Water, Electricity, or Heat

It’s your landlord’s responsibility to ensure that you have access to these vital services in your unit and building. If you don’t have access to running water, your landlord has failed to pay the utility bills on time, or there is no electricity in the apartment due to mechanical failure, you have the right to report them to the city.

Lead Paint

Lead paint was commonly used in homes that were built before 1978. If you live in an older apartment and there is lead paint present, understand that you could be putting yourself (and especially young children) at risk of several health issues. It’s your landlord’s responsibility to mitigate the problem and ensure you aren’t breathing or ingesting toxic chemicals.

Dysfunctional Plumbing Fixtures

It’s also your landlord’s responsibility to make sure your plumbing is working properly —especially if you only have one bathroom in your apartment.

Presence of Mold

Mold can cause illness or trigger severe allergic reactions if present in a living space. For that reason, your landlord is obligated to schedule a professional treatment or cleaning to get rid of any mold and/or mildew that’s present.

Delayed Waste Removal

If your trash isn’t being picked up on a regular basis, you have a right to report it to the city. It’s your landlord’s responsibility to make sure it’s removed from the property regularly and on time.

Structural Issues

This can be anything from a leaky roof to a foundational issue — and it’s on your landlord to make sure that it’s fixed.

Reporting the Violations

Before you go to the city or begin to pursue a court case against the landlord, you should first notify the landlord of the issue. You must submit these complaints to your landlord in writing. Depending on where you live, they will typically have a certain number of days to address the problem at hand.

If, however, you have repeatedly asked them to fix the problems in your apartment to no avail and submitted a request to them in writing, it’s time to contact the city. Start by gathering as much information as you can on the types of violations you see occurring and the frequency at which they occur. When speaking with the health department, you should also indicate whether or not the perceived health code violations prevented you from inhabiting the apartment or caused you bodily harm.

You should also make sure to write down the date, time, and topic of any phone calls between yourself and the landlord or other residents that are also experiencing problems. These notes will be sufficient enough to show to the city exactly why you had to notify them of the violations in the first place.

    The entire apartment is falling apart! The front porch has dropped 3-4 inches from the front door. There are areas in the bathroom and kitchen you can feel the floor sink when you step on it. The drains, kitchen sink, bathroom sink, bathtub, toilet, drain slowly if not at all without help. Our landlord, Mike Routson, sends people out for quick fixes. It’s been very embaressing when friends or family come here. On top of that, the apartment next door, we have their breaker box in our closet! And, there is a cesspool of.. smells like sewage in the drainage ditch by the road! We have to close our front door sometimes, it’s so strong!

    I have read all of the comments and I still can’t believe that problems exist and the landlord who takes your money every month won’t do anything about any of it. I am going through just about the same thing. The ceilings, walls, and floor boards are all affected by water damage. The floor boards that go around, are all either covered with musty stuff or mold. I think it is mold. The walls have these bubble lookings things creeping and growing on the walls and the ceilings are all covered with water marks. I have had problems with flooding in the bedroom, the closet, living room and dining room. When I moved into this apartment, I was told that if I didn’t move from the 9th floor, that I was keeping them from being compliant with a code. (I don’t know which one.) Every year, when it comes time to renew the lease, we never get our leases on time. I should have gotten mine August 1, 2012, still don’t have it, but there was a rent increase from 545.00 to 615.00, they sure made sure that the rent increase was on time. The inside of the apartments are in such bad shape. The only reason I have stayed is because the VA is across the street, so convenience I guess would be the major factor. These people are so rude and always with bad attitudes. I don’t understand how the owners can make all these repairs and improvements to the building but do absolutely nothing for people with disabilities. they replaced the front entrance doors, the only ones, they didn’t do anything with the rest of them, but they have gone to me and some others with disabilities, having a real hard time getting in and out of them.

      If there is any mold, they absolutely have to take care of it. It is very dangerous and can cause life threatening problems. You need to take lots of pictures, document the problems and call the health department.>

    In regards to The Fountains / Landmark Residential, in Palm Beach Gardens Florida.

    The railing on the outside is loose, the steps have loose bricks, the wall in my room had or might still have mold. When wall was opened there was a vent from the person living next door going into my room, the vent is causing the mold and i was asked if i wanted to keep it open, which to me is stealing the neighbors air conditioning. Also, my water heater makes a loud bubbling sounds almost all day which hasn’t been fixed since I moved in 11 months ago. This place is dangerous for small kids!!!!

    We have a huge hole in our ceiling and it rains inside. The ceiling actually fell in at one point. The rest of the room is cracks and bubbles. The landlord has known about this for about a year and hasn’t done anything. We have called multiple times sent him pictures and he doesn’t care. He never pays the trashnon time right now we have a balcony full of trash because there’s no where else to put it. We have no other money for a down payment anywhere else and we know he will kick us out if we call the health department. I’m not sure what to do.

    My landlord replaced all the toilets in our building recently. The toilets replaced were from 1973. The workers hired for this did not laying anything on the ground and old toilet water got all over the hallway carpets. They placed them on our front lawn a lot were broken. There is a funny smell throughout our building and you can see stains from where the old toilets were deaged and our stairs covered in brown liquid. Unfortunately when we informed of the upcoming construction we were unaware of the toilets being replaced so many people didn’t clean them . Is it my landlords responsibility to clean the sewage and toilet water from the building and stairs and is this a health code violation?

    I lived in this apartment complex for about 9 months. The first apartment I was set to lived in was infested with roaches. I kept calling the office to schedule for pest control. They did more than 3 treatments and I still kept seeing roaches! They moved us to another apartment. Again I still see roaches but not as much! But recently I just found out we got BED BUGS! We got 2 treatments done and today was the last one, but the pest control didn’t come! I still see bugs! What do I do from here. I have a NEW BORN & a 18 month old. I stayed at my moms for a week because I don’t want my babies getting bite by bed bugs! We have to stay in our living room on the coaches! What do I do from here! 🙁

    I live in Savannah Lakes it is disgusting. We have mold and a gigantic hole on the outside of our apartment leading into the inside of our apartment. Our washer and dryer unit is currently blocking the hole on the inside. A neighbor complained that there was a leak in their apartment about 4 months ago, and that is when the maintenance team created this hole. Again this was 4 months ago. Still to this day it has not been repaired. I do have pictures and have put in multiple maintenance requests. I am beyond disgusted. Not sure what to do from here. They keep promising “they are remolding” and someone will be out to fix it in a couple weeks, however this promise was made 3 and a half months ago. I have pictures and there is also mold starting to build up on the outside. I am located in Florida. This is a health code violation correct?

    Since day one we were informed by the landlord that they still had little jobs to fix. Trim was taken off, register vents all gone, outlet covers missing, outlets that don’t work, broken windows, & no key for my front door! Since there is no trim, I have a gap between my wall & floor. No register vents just holes exposing duct work. Still missing outlet covers here & there. Leaky faucet water bill runs $40 more now a month, oven broken. Still no key for the front door. No railings on the front porch with a crumbling step. A family member fell on & chipped their knee bone. Mold in my bathroom & around windows. I have a plexi-glass window that pops out & had to hot glue back. Roof is way over due, just waiting for leakage. Also, have an unstable garage & shed that’s rotting! Did I mention all these repairs have been talked about for over 18months and was asked to leave when repair men came to just give an estimate 4 months ago?? No repairs to this day, & was told the oven is our problem even though it was furnished by the landlord. Not to forget I have no vent over my oven either.. this is not ok!!

    I also have issues….. We live in a apartment complex. There are several apartments that have severe black mold issues. They try to just clean it or paint over it and that don’t work. Walls have been taken down and found out that it is in the walls through out every apartment. Water pipes have leaked in the interior walls leaving mold in the inner walls. Cabinets and counters have separated from walls. There is cracks in ceilings and walls. Balcony’s are not safe for little children. Upper floors are weak. Electrical and sewage Im almost certain are not up to code. Foundations cracked. Stairwell banisters are loose. Owner don’t want to fix correctly and does a quick fix because if they don’t notice issues than its not their concern. Tired of landlords that want to be slumlords, they need to think of their residents as more than just their paycheck. We need ppl who are gonna be caring and concerned about health, safety ect. of the residents!!!!!!!!!!

    I am renting a condo in Hercules, and have been for 4 months now. I have two small children who are now also sick due to the unsafe living conditions of our condo. Our heater does not work, and has not worked, we have had numerous water leaks, and were just informed of our condo being full of mold & mildew. The landlord/ owners won't fix or repair anything. I was told by the landlord/owners, "if you don't like it then leave." I have called code enforcement, building inspectors, health and safety officers, the city manager, the county manager, and no one will come out to do a code violation check on my condo. I was told by multiple Health Departments, we don't have code enforcement even though, it says it on our city home page. Why won't anyone come out and do a code and safety violation check? Families are being taken advantage of by landlords/ owners due to our city not having code enforcement officers or departments. In the meantime, there are rental properties that are offered to us citizens that are uninhabitable, and not safe living conditions. Who do we call for help, and who is held accountable? Also, look at the rent prices. Rent is increasing daily, and slum lords are continuously threatening or forcing families to still pay rent under inhabitable living conditions.

    I just moved in my apartment 2/7/2019. Never did a before walkthrough. I've been complaining about a mildew moldy smell , sloppy painting. The heating system is moldy, they have a dirty clogged filter covering the vent. After a week rental office send maintenance supervisor he agrees it shouldn't be like that and should've been done before I moved in. I have pictures of everything. I stated this things needed to be rectified before the 1st of March. This still has not been rectified. The smell is ridiculous it smells like wet basement. I refused to pay rent now they say I owe $150 late fees plus rent. My electric bill is $153. I'm barely home. It's high due to the clogged filter, what can I do about this.

I told the manager and him that there is a leak in the walls somewhere you can tell by where it is located and the water marks. They ask me how would I know I told them where I worked. They try to cover it up and say we know what we are doing. The maintenance guy washes it off and paints it with flat paint a month later it is back and they have refused to fix it because we are moving out on April 1st. Isn't that nice.

    I live in an APT by HUD; we are on lockdown! But no one is coming in the building for a month to do cleaning and WE have garbage rooms that are really filthy including dog feces laying on the floor. The first floor bathrooms are not being cleaned ; and they locked them up ! And no one is taking the inside garbage away ! It is like we are for-gotten
