Code Enforcement—Why It Matters

Web Admin - Thursday, March 15, 2018

If you read our previous blog, you now know a little about how to avoid a citation. Here are some additional compelling questions (answers courtesy of the City of Jacksonville):

Why is there enforcement?

The City of Jacksonville acknowledges the need to enforce a certain standard of property maintenance and to ensure a reasonable quality of life for the city’s residents and neighborhoods

Where do they “enforce”?

All privately owned properties, structures and parts thereof, including but not limited to:

Yards, Premises, Parking Lots, Driveways, Easements, Homes, Businesses, Vacant Lots, Warehouses

Most Common Violations (just a sampling!)

  • Junk or abandoned vehicles with expired or missing license plates
  • Accumulation of garbage, rubbish or trash or debris
  • Excessive growth of weeds, grass or noxious vegetation
  • Potentially dangerous dead trees or limbs
  • Conditions which could breed (read: standing water) or harbor insects or rodents
  • Unmaintained swimming pools
  • Fences, gates or accessory structures in disrepair

The answer to why it matters is simply stated in the City’s answer re: why there is enforcement. As a reminder, the City of Jacksonville encompasses a large area, from Riverside to San Marco to Jacksonville Beach to Mandarin and beyond.

It matters to us because every home under management tends to have multiple aspects that can be affected by code.

Professional property managers are vigilant for potential code violations that could cause you headaches if overlooked or ignored. Most homes generate trash and have yards (and may struggle with weed control) with trees and fences! They will proactively recommend action to avoid citations (time consuming and in some cases, costly). You can find all the details at www.coj.net under “code enforcement”

Code Enforcement—What You Don’t Know Could……

Get you a citation! There is a lot to know about code enforcement in Duval but for starters, here’s how to AVOID a citation (simplified and abbreviated), residential OR commercial (courtesy of City of Jacksonville)

  • Maintain property appearance: yards cut, trash removed, etc.
  • Maintain exterior structure appearance: surfaces painted, stained, etc.
  • Maintain the building: repair or replace missing, damaged, rotted or worn components
  • Maintain electrical & plumbing systems: address faulty, leaking or corroded components
  • Maintain interior components: worn, torn or damaged flooring, windows, walls, etc.
  • Maintain all water heaters, appliances, etc. per manufacturer’s recommendations
  • Smoke detectors-at least one properly operating
  • Keep property safe & sanitary: address ANY issues that may pose an imminent threat to health or safety IMMEDIATELY

Wanda Franklin has managed our two properties for at least 20 years, first as a property manager at another company and then as owner of Heth Realty (now FPM). She has kept us well informed of all issues, has been prompt in dealing with any problems/issues with tenants, repairs, etc., and has been a pleasure to work with. If we email or call, I know well receive an answer right away. Its difficult being 3000 miles away so its important that we have someone we can trust watching over our properties.
