Housing health

If you suspect a health detriment in an apartment or other similar living space, always first contact the owner of the property or the person responsible for maintenance (e.g. property manager). Health detriment refers to an illness, other health disorder, or the presence of a factor or condition that can reduce the health of the population or an individual’s living environment.

The owner of the apartment is obliged to remove the defects in the apartment that impair housing health. If the owner of the apartment has not taken the necessary corrective measures despite the resident’s requests, the resident can contact the health inspector in their area.
