Neighborhood Development is dedicated to making sure that Charlotte’s neighborhoods are great places to live. One way we do that is through code enforcement. The City of Charlotte’s Housing Code requires homeowners and landlords to maintain all housing (homes, apartments, townhouses, etc. regardless of when built), within the city limits and unincorporated areas of Mecklenburg County, in a safe and clean condition. The Housing Code also applies to abandoned commercial structures.
The City of Charlotte’s Health and Sanitation Code requires property owners to maintain their premises in a safe and sanitary condition. Violations include high weeds/grass, accumulation of trash or junk, junk automobiles, etc.
