As homes age, routine maintenance plays a vital role in maintaining property values. Our Neighborhood Preservation Inspection team is responsible for inspecting existing housing stock for code violations and ensuring the violations are corrected. Our team is proactive in their pursuit of code violations.
With a proactive approach, an inspector will discover code violations while he/she rigorously combs his/her designated area. Once a violation is discovered, a member of the team performs an inspection of the exterior of the house for Property Maintenance Code violations (peeling paint, house gutters not properly secured, loose or missing siding and roofing, litter in yards). By correcting these code violations, neighborhoods can enjoy property value stability.
You can partner with Saint Louis County by using this Property Maintenance Code Checklist to perform an inspection of your property. Early detection and correction of maintenance issues eliminates costly repairs and neighborhood deterioration.
