Legal Question

Asked on: 4/19/13, 8:43 am

When city agency issues a letter to property owner A stating that adjacent property B has a building code violation and B agreed to abate it.

But B has not abated it for years.

Is there a law that requires the City agency to enforce the code by ordering B to abate the code violation? Thank you.

I would think that in most cases of code violations, a city would have the right, but not the obligation, to enforce the code against the owner.
