Each year, Code Compliance inspects each apartment
complex in Arlington in an effort to maximize the safety of the
occupants. Inspectors work to ensure that fire hazards, structural
defects, and other violations are eliminated.
In addition, tenants may contact Code Compliance
to report violations, such as lack of hot water, heat, air
conditioning, or non-functioning appliances. Before calling, please
give your apartment management an opportunity to correct the problem.
Code Compliance encourages all tenants to pay
close attention to outside storage on patios and balconies. Unkept
balconies are unattractive and may be considered unclean premises. In
addition, grills/smokers are not allowed on patios or balconies.
Inadequate swimming pool barriers are a common
problem in apartment communities. If you see a gate that does not
close and latch by itself or a problem with a fence surrounding a
pool, please contact Code Compliance immediately. A child’s life
may depend on it.
