The Quality Housing Program is designed to improve the safety and maintenance of all housing in Lee’s Summit. The program takes a preventative approach to property code compliance through free onsite inspections, outreach and education, and the establishment of a certification program.
Outreach and Education
The City will partner with various homeowner associations, community organizations and business groups to help them improve housing in their areas. City employees are available to attend community meetings hosted by these groups to speak directly to residents and property owners about concerns, help educate them about their responsibilities and provide guidance on maintenance issues. Schedule a speaker by calling 816.969.1200.
Quality Housing Certification
Property owners or renters within the City can schedule a free inspection to certify a living unit meets identified standards. An inspection consists of a short visit by a Neighborhood Services representative to check the interior and exterior of the property for potential hazards. The representative will also provide suggestions to help the property avoid future maintenance problems. For housing that meets the minimum standards for safety and maintenance, a certificate is provided to the property owner and the property is included in a list of active certified housing to assist those relocating to or within Lee's Summit. The certification is good for two years and a reinspection is required to renew the certification.
To schedule a free inspection call 816.969.1200 or email.
