Accessory Apartment Inspections

The Department of Housing and Community Affairs Housing Code Enforcement section is responsible for conducting inspections of existing approved Accessory Apartments as well as preliminary inspections for these units as part of the process for obtaining a Class III Accessory Apartment license. Please note that if the Accessory Apartment is located inside of the municipalities of Gaithersburg or Rockville, the inspections are conducted by staff from those respective municipalities.

Inspections are typically conducted within 5 business days (dependent on urgency, existing schedule, and caseload).

To speak with a Customer Service Representative, please call 311 during business hours.
