Minimum Housing Standards

The Town of Indian Trail has adopted a minimum Housing Code to ensure that all residential structures are maintained in a safe and sanitary condition.



Property owners or property managers must ensure that their residential structures are maintained in a safe and sanitary condition.  The Town’s Minimum Housing ordinance has standards pertaining to structural soundness, plumbing, electrical systems, fire hazards, ventilation, heating & sleeping facilities. This housing code is a minimum code, not a “wish list” of what the perfect house would look like.  If a house fails to pass this code, it probably is not safe to be occupied.  Such houses also have an effect on surrounding properties.  These situations lead not only to immediate health and safety problems but can affect an entire neighborhood.
