An accessory building/apartment is a completely independent living facility with separate cooking, eating, sanitation and sleeping facilities that is either in or added to an existing single-family dwelling or in a separate accessory structure on the same lot as an existing dwelling. The section of Code Enforcement with the Atlanta Police Department will inspect the property and ensure that violations exist. Once it is verified that violations exist on the property then the owner is notified. This process can take up to 90 days.Code enforcementMinimum standards for structuresCode Enforcement WebsiteThis Article was created on: 02/23/2014This Article was last updated on: 05/08/2018You can tell us about your request here on the internet OR by calling the Customer Service Center at 311, or 404-546-0311.
