Multi-Family Inspection Program
In 2014, the City of Doraville passed an ordinance that requires multi-family rental dwellings of four (4) or more units to be inspected for compliance with adopted codes. The multi-family inspection program is designed to preserve property values, promote economic vitality and crime prevention, and ensure safe, healthy, and clean environments; and promote ongoing investment in upkeep and maintenance.
