Report a Code Enforcement Violation

Do you need to report an eyesore?

The City of Orlando offers the public a discreet way to let the City know about code violations. Common issues are:

  • Overgrown grass
  • Dangerous or run-down housing
  • Illegal home improvements
  • Parking on lawn 

Keep in Mind

  • Give your neighbors a chance to fix the problem.
  • If you're comfortable, talk to whomever is responsible for the violation before reporting it.
  • Expect the City to respond to your submission within 24-48 working hours.
  • If you don't hear from the City, check the status of your report at or call 407.246.2686.



Determine if the violation is in the City

Not all addresses with Orlando in them are in the City of Orlando. You can check the street sign and make sure there is an image of the Lake Eola Fountain on it or use our information locator to make sure you are in the City.

Gather information 

Collect the address, specific location and a description of the issue. If possible, include a photo of the violation.

Also note time and day, if the violation occurs at particular times.
