We’re responsible for upholding city codes regarding environmental, housing, and zoning ordinances. By identifying ordinance violations and responding to citizen complaints within city limits, we serve the public by protecting the health, safety, and environmental stability of South Bend’s business and residential communities.
The City of South Bend reminds all landlords / owners of rental units within city limits that the 2018 Landlord Registration period begins September 1st. All property owners who own a residential property(s) that the owner does not personally occupy must register that property (s) with Code Enforcement annually. The registration period will end on December 31st. The $5 fee will be waived if registered between 9/1/18 and 12/31/18.
