Can I, As A Tenant, Be Cited For Violating Housing Codes?

Yes, you can. Tenants can be and are issued Housing Violation Notices for unsanitary conditions says the HRA. The law dictates that tenants have a responsibility to maintain and clean the apartment, to use all the electrical, gas, plumbing and heating equipment properly. Landlords have the right to ask for HRA inspections of an apartment if they think it`s not being maintained properly ­­ but they must have evidence.
