Housing code information

We provide information on how inspectors base their reviews on City and State housing codes.

City of Minneapolis information

Most orders issued by Housing Inspectors reference the Housing Maintenance Code, which is Chapter 244 of the Minneapolis Code of Ordinances. You can view the Housing Maintenance Code. You may also see references to the Minnesota State Building Code and the Minnesota State Fire Code, both of which are available in full on the International Code Council's website.
