Property Standards By-law

By-law & Licensing Home

As a property owner or tenant, you must do your part to keep up with property standards.

Property standards are the required minimum standards that specify how a property should be maintained and to ensure that a minimum level of maintenance is adhered to on all properties within the Town. They also address rental conditions. Richmond Hill’s Property Standards By-law regulates: 
  • Yard maintenance
  • Grading, paving and surface conditions
  • Accessory buildings, such as sheds
  • Vacant property
  • Exterior lighting
  • Fences, retaining walls and signs
  • Structural adequacy pertaining to foundations, walls, ceilings, doors, columns, beams, floors, roof slabs, balconies, openings, stairs, handrails, chimney and flues
  • Utilities, such as heating, A/C, plumbing and electrical
  • Fire damage
  • Interiors of rental housing units
