Housing Quality and Safety: Increasing Inspection Capacity
Much of Connecticut's multifamily housing stock is old and in disrepair. Forty percent of Connecticut's rental housing was built prior to 1960.
In most towns in Connecticut, tenants are responsible for submitting complaints regarding unsafe or unhealthy living conditions in their apartment or building. This puts tenants at risk for retaliatory action from landlords and serves as a deterrent to reporting poor inadequate housing conditions.
