I live in an apartment, and I am unhappy with my landlord. What can I do?

The Building and Safety Division inspects all multi-family apartment units at least once a year. The Village Code mandates a clean and safe environment with basic utilities for all multi-family dwellings. Please inform us of your concerns by completing the Village's online service form here, and your name will be kept confidential. Please be aware that the Village is limited to addressing code violation issues and cannot intervene with your landlord in disputes concerning rent, deposits, pets, etc.
