Douglas County and the city of Omaha have made it very easy to see what current code violations your property may have and what code violations have been closed out.
The first source to look is https://www.omahapermits.com/permitinfo/
The second which is not always fully up to date is http://data-dogis.opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/omaha-planning-building-code-violations/data
The Open Data site offers the ability to filter by your address, the owners name and will link directly to the violation page location on Omahapermits.com
On the Omaha Permits site for the property in question you will see a More Information Tab that can be clicked then select “Application Information Table”
Here you will see a full break down of active, closed and removed violations for the property in question.
The Omaha Permits site also lists phone numbers and e-mails for people to call if you have specific questions about code violations. Having dealt with many properties with code violations I can say the city of Omaha is very easy to work with. Like with any government agency there may be red tape and things may take a while to progress but the city and their inspectors are there to help you and ensure properties are safe and livable.
What if I Don’t Want To Deal With The Code Violation?
You can always hire a contractor to help fix and resolve issues on your property.
If the property has become a problem property for you and giving you nothing but headaches we can also make you a cash offer on the home in “AS-IS” condition. The Problem Property People of Omaha specialize in just that, Problem Properties and we have the know how and time to navigate lengthy inspection times and repairs.
If you want out give us a call today for a cash offer at 402-207-2505
