When you receive an Order To Comply (OTC) stating that your property violates Code, read the order carefully to identify which items:
- require a permit
- find contact information for the inspector or supervisor
- determine what fees may be applied and penalties if not paid on time (see documents below)
- determine appeal procedures
The current property owner is responsible for complying with the Order, even if previous owners or tenants have performed the un-permitted work or created the violation.
Refer to the "Obtaining Permits to Resolve Orders" information bulletin for more detail.
