Enforcing Safety Standards for Existing Structures
THD inspects existing structures to ensure and enforce certain minimum building standards that must be in place if the structure is occupied or used. These standards, set forth in Title 55 (BOCA Existing Structure Code), include requirements pertaining to sanitation, maintenance, electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems, and more.
THD also responds to complaints pertaining to landlord and tenant rights and responsibilities, as established in the Oklahoma Non-residential/Residential Landlord and Tenant Acts.
If you have a complaint, question or concern about a structure’s safety or compliance—or about your rights as a landlord or tenant, please call 918-595-4200. We’ll conduct an on-site inspection, if necessary, or refer you to the right course of action.
