New Datasets for ChicagoJan282015
The City of Chicago has two new datasets on its open data portal: problem landlords and building code scofflaws. The Problem Landlords List identifies residential building owners repeatedly cited for failing to provide tenants with basic services and protections, such as adequate heat, hot water, and working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Those on the list have been found liable in two or more Administrative Hearing cases within a 24-month period and have three or more serious building code violations. The Building Code Scofflaw list identifies residential building owners with three or more properties that are the subject of active Circuit Court cases where the violations remain uncorrected after the second court hearing.
