Rental Housing Minimize

The Monroe County Health Department has no local rental housing code and functions more as a clearinghouse for information. A majority of calls are forwarded to the City Housing and Neighborhood Development Office (HAND) which enforces rental property code within the city of Bloomington limits.

Our department provides information and guidance on tenant complaints. We also provide information regarding the Indiana State rule IC 32-31-7 and IC 32-31-8 Tenant Obligations and Landlord Obligations respectively. Callers may be directed to Legal Aid Services, Monroe County Community Justice and Mediation, Monroe County Building Department, Animal Control, Solid Waste Management District, and the Mobile Homes Compliance Section of the Indiana State Department of Health when appropriate.
