Proactive Apartment Inspections

City Council approved a new Proactive Apartment Inspections Program. Starting April 2, 2023, the Code Enforcement Section will proactively inspect apartment complexes to provide safer housing conditions and ensure they meet minimum code standards.

A registry of apartment complexes that have been cited for code violations will be maintained. Any apartment complex with five or more units within San Antonio city limits could be required to be listed on the registry if they:

  • Receive three designated citations within a rolling six-month period, or
  • Ordered by the Building Standards Board

Registered properties will be subject to monthly inspections of up to 5% of units while in the program, and remain in the registry for a minimum of six months.
