The City of Fort Worth Code Compliance Division includes the Multi-Family Inspection Section. This group is tasked with ensuring landlords provide suitable, safe and sanitary conditions to families living in multi-family communities throughout the city.
This group also ensures that tenants are provided information on the responsibility and rights of being residents of a multi-family dwelling community. Through these actions the Multi-Family Inspection Section assists in providing a peaceful and enjoyable atmosphere for both the landlords and tenants to work and live.
TCU Overlay District Registration
The newly adopted TCU Overlay District seeks to protect existing single-family residential neighborhoods by setting an occupancy limit of three unrelated persons in single family zoning districts within the overlay.
All one-family and two-family dwellings must register by March 31, 2015. Additionally owners of buildings being occupied by four or five unrelated persons, or those issued a building permit by Dec. 8, 2014, may continue such use by registering as a nonconforming use by March 31, 2015.
To report potential occupancy violations inside or outside of the overlay district, download the Occupancy Violation Investigation form.
