Baltimore City Council bill calls for more inspections of apartment buildings with repeated code violations

February 28, 2023

Baltimore apartment buildings with repeat code violations would face more frequent city inspections under legislation introduced Monday by two city councilmen. The Strengthening Renters’ Safety Act, introduced by Democratic Councilmen Zeke Cohen and James Torrence, would create a “priority dwelling” list of buildings with more than 20 apartments and a history of poor conditions. Buildings on the list would be inspected twice a year by the Department of Housing and Community Development until conditions improve.
