Housing Inspections

The Housing Section is responsible for the enforcement of the Property Maintenance Code, residential zoning restrictions, and the permitting requirements for apartment buildings. Apartment buildings are required to be maintained in compliance with the code to ensure the safety of the occupants and are regulated through Chapter 5.38 and 21.05 of the Lincoln Municipal Code. Housing inspectors make routine inspections of apartment buildings and respond to complaints on residential properties. The preservation of existing housing to ensure the safety of the occupants is the primary responsibility of the Housing Section.
