Housing Court is a tool Code Enforcement Inspectors use to keep neighborhoods safe and fight blight.
When a house, multi-family building, garage, or fence is in disrepair, a Code Enforcement Inspector will work with the property owner to create a plan to bring the property into compliance. Sometimes this can be as simple as replacing a broken window or sanding and repainting a wooden fence that has seen better days. Other times it can be more involved masonry work or roof repairs.
Housing Court is presided by a neutral third party attorney who ensures that the work plan drafted by the Code Enforcement Inspector and the property owner is reasonable and fair.
Housing Court is held two Tuesdays per month at 9:00 AM at City Hall, 419 Fulton Street, Room 400, Peoria, IL 61602.
Only the owner of the property or a registered property manager can represent the owner of a property at Housing Court. Failing to attend a scheduled Housing Court hearing will result in significant fines.
If you have a question about your hearing date, please call your Inspector. If you are not sure who your Inspector is, please refer to the Code Enforcement Housing Map or call us at 309-494-8654.
