Any property owner in the Village of Patchogue can call the Housing Department for an informal inspection. An inspector will go to the property and perform an inspection to bring any existing or potential violations to the owner's attention. The property owner will be contacted by mail with a list of all violations found and will be given ample time to correct all of the violations with no summonses issued.
All property owners in the Village are asked to be aware of the outward condition of their property. A property that is not maintained effects the community as whole.
