Housing inspections are performed under the guidance of the International Property Maintenance Code and other codes as adopted by the City of Littleton. The owner(s) of the property will be responsible for the correction of all violations as required by the city.
See the list of common violations in the box at left.
A copy of inspection requirements will be mailed to the owner of record prior to inspection. Inspections are required for all units occupied or vacant and all other interior and exterior common areas.
Note: Court summons may be issued at any time during the inspection process due to noncompliance, failure to make sufficient progress, a serious violation, or if the owner is uncooperative. If access in not granted, a right-of-entry warrant will be obtained by the city official. Failure to make required repairs may result in the city abating, vacating or demolishing dangerous buildings or units. The cost of such action will be the responsibility of the owner of the property and may become a lien on the property. Tenants are required to keep units clean, sanitary and free of clutter and to report defects to the property owner or manager in a timely manner.
