Inspection Program Questions
If a property is not registered as a rental property, what should I do?
- Call the Code Enforcement Divison at (785) 832-7700 and request to be transferred to the rental inspector.
- Report a Code Violation.
- E-mail a potential code violation.
For each of the above you will need the address of the property and an explanation as to why you believe the property to be a rental property.
What will happen after I report the property?
- The rental inspector will investigate the complaint.
- If the complaint is founded a letter will be sent to the property owner requesting they register their property within 30 days.
- If the complaint is unfounded, the case will be closed.
If the complainant leaves a name and phone number, the rental inspector will make contact and report on the complaint’s progress.
