Good Neighbor: Know Local Laws

Being a Good Neighbor in Recovery Housing > Good Neighbor: Know Local Laws


It is important that you understand your local legal housing requirements.

It is recommended that you hire an attorney to help you fully understand your local ordinances and ensure that you have all of the appropriate inspections, registrations and other requirements met for your local community.

You can typically find the local building and zoning codes on your local government’s website.  You can also contact the local city if you have specific questions about the local codes or regulations.
