STEPS TO HOW TO RESPOND TO A CITY OF PHOENIX CODE VIOLATION

 

CITY OF PHOENIX CODE VIOLATIONWe manage many homes when it comes to Phoenix Property Management. We deal with HOAs, city governments and much more. I received a very lengthy Email from an owner regarding his property. He wanted clarification on How to Respond To a City of Phoenix Code violation on his property. The failure to comply with the violation would be subject up to $2,500 for each violation and/or six months in jail. The owner was very nervous. The purpose of the letter is for the owner to take action. 

 

The City of Phoenix Neighborhood Code Compliance department handles the following complaints from residents:

 

  • Trash
  • High weeds
  • Dead trees
  • Graffiti
  • Outdoor storage
  • Deteriorated fences
  • Illegal signs
  • Vacant properties
  • Inoperable vehicles

 

Their main function is to enforce and maintain all codes and ordinances for the city of Phoenix. They want to ensure the health and safety for all neighborhoods. There are times when neighbors are unable to speak with a homeowner or tenants neglect the home leaving it a mess. Neighbors can call in anonymously to report a violation. Hence, a city code enforcer officer comes to the complaint address. Then, they write up the incident to be given to the current homeowner. They even have an app to download to make it easier to report code violations. Wow, technology meets code enforcement.

 

What does an owner do when they receive a city of Phoenix code violation?

 

HARRY'S 7 STEPS TO RESPOND TO A CITY OF PHOENIX CODE VIOLATION

 

  1. Read the violation twice to ensure what exactly is the complaint to ensure corrective action is taken in a timely manner
  2. Call the city of Phoenix code officer to discuss the complaint and let them personally know that I am working on the complaint
  3. Obtain the officer’s cell phone number and email address in case you have further questions
  4. Ask for an extension to ensure the complaint is resolved within the time agreed
  5. Take before and after pictures to verify the complaint has been satisfied
  6. Obtain a receipt showing a vendor has been paid to do the work
  7. Email officer the before and after pictures along with the paid receipt showing proof the violation has been satisfied

This is a much better approach Harry.
