Minimum Housing Standard

Ordinance #O080408-58

The Town of Indian Trail has adopted a minimum Housing Standard to ensure that all residential structures are maintained in a safe and sanitary condition. Property owners or property managers must ensure that their residential structures are maintained in a safe and sanitary condition.

This housing standard is a minimum standard, not a "wish list" of what the perfect house would look like. If a house fails to pass this code, it is considered unsafe and cannot be occupied. Such houses also have an effect on surrounding properties. These situations lead not only to immediate health and safety issues but can affect an entire neighborhood.
