Property Maintenance Code Enforcement

We receive about 700 requests for service each year. These requests include tenant complaints about poor housing conditions and neighbor complaints of blight on commercial and residential buildings and premises.

What to Expect

An inspector will research the complaint and take the appropriate action. Should violations be identified during an inspection, the Code Official (inspector) issues a Notice of Violation and/or a Civil Citation to the owner or responsible person for the property. 

Register a Complaint

You can report complaints by phone at 615-452-1313 (ask for Officer Jessica Jackson or extension 3250) or online. When filing a complaint, please provide as much information as possible, including the address and suspected illegal use of the property.
