Irving Code Enforcement, through its licensing and inspection program, is dedicated to improving the quality and standard of living for all people living in apartments, duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes and manufactured homes. A set of minimum standards are established in the Irving Code of Ordinances to protect the health, safety and welfare of the community. Residents and property managers share the responsibility of maintaining a safe and healthy living environment.
Property owners and managers must maintain all exterior grounds and premises in a clean, safe and sanitary condition, as well as ensure exterior and interior structures and equipment are in good condition, structurally sound and in a sanitary state. They are further required to provide a living unit with working essential utilities and always make emergency maintenance staff available to tenants.
Residents are required to ensure proper housekeeping of their units to prevent insect and rodent infestation. Tenants must promptly inform management of maintenance issues and allow reasonable time for correction. Residents whose maintenance reports have not received correction by their property managers should contact Code Enforcement to ensure that units are maintained to code standards.
The ordinance governing multifamily property standards is located at CityofIrving.org/Municode and starts at Chapter 8, Article 5, Section 8-23. For more information, contact Code Enforcement at (972) 721-4949 or via email.
