HOUSING CASE MANAGEMENT
Administrative Rule Adopted by Office of Neighborhood
General Housing Maintenance is the minimum standard requirements for
residential property within the City of Portland as determined by Title 29 of
the City code.
All residential property shall be maintained to the building code
requirements in effect at the time of construction, alteration, or repair and
shall meet the minimum requirements of Chapter 29.30, Housing Maintenance
Requirements. If Neighborhood Inspections identifies housing maintenance
violations that meet the minimum requirements for opening a case an enforcement
process will be initiated.
It is the expectation that each housing complaint received by Neighborhood
Inspections be inspected within 5 working days (7 working day from May to
October) of the initial complaint.
Title 29 gives the property owner 30 days from the date the violation letter
is mailed to resolve the violation. Once the 30 days has elapsed, Neighborhood
Inspections will recheck the property within 2 working days of any request. In
addition to property owner requested inspections, inspectors make re-inspections
and send progress letters every 6 months for the duration of the case.
If violations aren’t corrected within the timeline stated in the initial
violation letter, the property will be charged a monthly enforcement fine
according to the Neighborhood Inspections Fine and Fee Schedule.
