Neighborhood Preservation Overview

Neighborhood Preservation was established to help protect against neighborhood deterioration and blight in the unincorporated areas of Saint Louis County. As homes age, routine maintenance plays a vital role in maintaining property values. Neighborhood Preservation is responsible for inspecting existing housing for code violations and ensuring the violations are corrected. By correcting these code violations, neighborhoods can enjoy stability in their property value. To update yourself on the latest changes in housing codes and our quarterly report, view our newsletter by clicking on the link under Neighborhood Preservation Newsletters.

You can partner with Saint Louis County by using this Property Maintenance Code Checklist to perform an inspection of your property. Early detection and correction of maintenance need eliminates costly repairs and neighborhood deterioration.

You can also download a copy of the checklist St. Louis County inspectors use for occupancy inspections below.

  • Paint peeling
  • House gutters not properly secured
  • Loose or missing siding and roofing
