Code Enforcement

Written by Daniel Woodruff, University of Florida

We assist with several legal matters; one of these matters is landlord-tenant issues. The most prolific complaint we receive from tenants is that their apartment or house is not kept up to code. These complaints range from electrical, plumbing, and structural issues.

Each city in Seminole County has a Code Enforcement Department. The majority of these departments field complaints from tenants about code and safety violations. However, the Lake Mary program does not handle tenant complaints.  You may also be able to report any health concerns regarding your apartment to the Seminole County Health Department. The phone numbers and links to the individual departments’ websites are posted below.
