Healthy Housing Codes

NCHH and the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) have collected state landlord-tenant codes that address health concerns in housing.

These healthy housing codes set the minimum standards for rental property and assigns specific duties for landlords and tenants, and to a certain extent, private housing. The codes have been categorized into energy efficiency; home safety and security from crime; moisture and weatherproofing; notices and disclosures; occupancy and access; pest control and extermination; smoke and carbon monoxide alarm codes.
