Property Standards By-Law No. 2003-58 provides standards for maintenance and occupancy for all properties within the Township of East Hawkesbury.

This By-law provides standards for the following:

  • maintenance of accessory buildings and yards
  • maintenance of buildings and structures, particularly dwelling units both interior and exterior.
  • use and occupancy of buildings
  • occupancy for dwelling
  • yards and surface conditions, including vacant lands and vacant buildings

All property owners are required to repair and maintain their property according to standards.

Following an official written complaint, the By-Law Enforcement Officer will investigates and determines if the property does not meet established standards. If a violation is found, the Office may issue information notices and/or orders to remedy. The person is given a reasonable time to have the work completed or condition repaired.

If you are a tenant, it would be advisable to contact your landlord first to give him the opportunity to resolve the issue before filing an official complaint to the Municipality.
