The City has a
Yard Maintenance By-law and
Property Standards By-law to ensure that the maintenance and occupancy of property within the community is maintained to an acceptable standard.
Examples of maintenance standards outlined in Property Standards By-law include:
The Property Standards Officer has the responsibility to administer and enforce property standards by-laws within the City. Property Standards Officers are appointed, by by-law, as both Property Standards Officers and Building Inspectors under the authority of the Building Code Act.
Please note: front yard (grass) parking is a violation of the Zoning By-law. Please log concerns regarding front yard parking with Development Services via Service Barrie,
Officers do not proactively patrol Property Standards By-law violations but respond to all complaints received as soon as possible. For property maintenance cases (long grass, garbage etc.) please log your concerns with Enforcement Services by phone or email: 705) 739-4241 or Enforcement.Services@barrie.ca. A
Property Standards Complaint Form is also available for your convenience.
Upon receipt of a concern a Property Standards Officer will investigate. The investigation may include any or all of the following actions:
As per Appendix A of the Property Standards By-law, an owner or occupant who has been served with an order and who is not satisfied with its terms or conditions may appeal to the Property Standards Committee by sending a notice of appeal by registered mail to the secretary of the Committee within 14 days after being served the order. Please contact Legislative & Court Services at (705) 726-4220 ext 5500 or CityClerks@barrie.ca for detail.
The City expects the tenant to co-operate with the owner, landlord and/or property manager (owner) by providing access, in accordance with applicable legislation, to carry out repairs at reasonable times, and expects the owner/tenant to carry out and complete remedial work in a timely manner.
We are here to assist both the owner and tenant achieve compliance with municipal by-laws. Any attempts to hinder the owner’s efforts to carry out remedial work are discouraged and may negatively affect the priority of the complaint and/or prompt completion. Likewise, if necessary, non-compliance with a notice or order will result in Property Standards exercising the fullest extent of the by-law.
