The purpose of the Eau Claire City Housing Inspection Program is to encourage neighborhood safety and ensure that the city’s housing supply meets minimum health and safety standards.

Complaint Investigations

The program investigates housing related complaints such as unsanitary conditions, safety concerns, and general maintenance issues (e.g. mold, plumbing and electrical issues, etc).

Eau Claire City Housing Inspection Program

The program includes inspections of residential dwellings to determine compliance with the Housing Code - Chapter 16.08. It is designed to identify dwellings that are more of a risk for health and safety. The property may meet the requirements for an interior and exterior required inspection based on:

  • the exterior survey
  • the number of complaints against the property
  • age of property
  • if the home contains any rental units
  • documented cases of retaliatory eviction
