If You Received a Code Violation

The goal of code compliance is to gain compliance and maintain Wellington's property maintenance standards and regulations. We do not wish to unduly penalize anyone.

Take prompt action to correct the violation. If you are not sure what needs to be corrected, how to correct it or, if you are working toward correcting the violation, but need additional time due to special circumstances, it is important that you call the Code Officer to discuss your issues. In most cases additional time will be given if the individual circumstances warrant such an extension.

Failure to Correct Violations

Failure to correct violations may result in a case proceeding to the Special Magistrate with the potential for fines being levied; costs incurred being charged and a lien being placed against the property.

Contacting Code Compliance

When contacting the Code Compliance Department please have your case number readily available in order to help access your case. Code Officers are often out in the field but will return voice mails and emails as soon as possible.
