Housing Quailty Standards

Our inspectors follow the Housing Quailty Standards set forth by Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD requires that each house or apartment have at least a living room, kitchen and bathroom. An effeciency apartment that has a kitchen area is all right, but there must be a separate bathroom, for private use.
