The City of Chicago has launched a new web tool that we support and encourage residents to utilize. All building inspections, detailed with the inspector’s notes, are organized by case and available for the public to view by entering the address of the building. Code violations date back to 1999 and are updated regularly.
To find out the history of building code violations at any address, click here. You can also find the link on the right-hand side of our website by clicking on the official Chicago seal.
