Can a City property maintenance inspector enter onto my property with or without my permission?
Code inspectors may enter privately-owned property when the owner gives their consent. An inspector may also conduct an inspection from a location where they are legally entitled to be such as the adjacent public sidewalk, streets and alleys. An inspector may enter onto private property to deliver notices or orders in connection to the enforcement of City regulations. Inspectors may not enter the interior of a property without the owner’s consent.
