Landlord-Tenant Handbook - Housing Code

The Village of Oak Park vigorously enforces local codes to help maintain the quality of housing in the community. Tenants have the right to have their apartments inspected by Village inspectors any time they suspect a violation of the code or if the landlord refuses to make corrections. State law prevents a landlord from taking action against a tenant in retaliation for a housing code violation complaint. Any tenant who suspects a violation should first contact the landlord. If no action is taken on the complaint, call Neighborhood Services Division at 708.383.5410 and ask to have an inspector come to the apartment. The inspector will schedule an appointment and perform an inspection. If the condition is a violation of the code, the inspector will inform the tenant and require the landlord to correct the issue.
