About Building Violations
In this section of EveryBlock, you can find building violations.
Building violations come from the Department of Buildings provided by the City of Chicago’s Data Portal.
Overview of Building Violations Process
Building Violation data are historical in nature and should not be relied upon for real estate transactions. For transactional purposes such as closings, please consult the title commitment for outstanding enforcement actions in the Circuit Court of Cook County or the Chicago Department of Administrative Hearings. Violations are always associated to an inspection and there can be multiple violation records to one inspection record. The information presented on this website is informational only and does not necessarily reflect the current condition of the building or property. The dataset contains cases where a respondent has been found to be liable as well as cases where the respondent has been found to be not liable.
