The borough has six inspectors who cruise its streets each day. Each inspector is assigned to a specific sector to best respond to resident needs. Inspectors:
- Approve plans and work specifications for work performed by residents within the borough.
- Issue permits and check compliance of the work.
- Comply with provisions of municipal by-laws (sanitary, maintenance and safety of residential housing units, public nuisances, public peace, etc.).
- Check on resident complaints and follow-up on such issues.
Problems to resolve?
If you believe the By-law concerning the sanitation and maintenance of dwellings units is not being observed in your building, please take the following steps before lodging a complaint with the borough:
- First try to come to an amicable agreement with the non-compliant owner or tenant.
- Should that fail, send an official notice by registered mail to the party in question requesting that the problem be fixed within a reasonable time frame. Keep a copy of the letter and your postal receipt.
- If, despite all of your efforts, the problem persists, contact the borough so that the inspectors can intervene in order to correct the problem.
Montréal's city inspectors may:
- Enter and inspect a building or dwelling unit.
- Require an assessment.
- Require corrective measures.
- Impose fines.
- Correct non-compliant situations.
- Evacuate and close unsafe dwellings.
