Our Approach

Free initial consultation

We will help you understand the violation(s) your property has been cited for and what will be involved in the process of resolution. You will walk away with an understanding of the whole process, what the next steps will be, a draft agreement in hand, and an assigned project manager.

Meet your project manager

He/She becomes the single point of contact for dealing with and coordinating the efforts of the attorney, architect, and contractor(s), ensuring that timelines are set and met. Your project manager will be your main point of contact until building violations are dismissed. For the most part, your project manager will act on your behalf — meaning your involvement will be minimal.

Project coordination and management

Your project manager will manage all communication between all of the parties involved, including drafting plans, coordinating building and construction services, and dealing with any city inspections to make sure that your property passes successfully.

Flat-fee payment

We charge a flat fee for our services that we will outline at the outset. Through our expansive network and long-standing relationships, our consultants offer us preferred pricing, which we pass on to you. We negotiate with all involved third parties upfront to save you time and money. There are no hidden or surprise costs..

Rest assured — with one phone call, we can handle the entire process for you from violation to corrective repairs to inspection, and ultimately, resolution.

The Headaches of Building Code Violations in Chicago

The City of Chicago has very strict building codes and zoning laws, and if you’ve ever received a violation, you know just how strict the city is with enforcement. Trying to get violations resolved can be costly, frustrating, and time-consuming, to say the least. And if not dealt with properly, you can incur substantial fines.

We know it can be overwhelming because we’ve been there — contacting the right people at the right departments, pulling the proper permits, drafting the corrective plans . . . it seems like an endless loop and you get nowhere.

But, we also know that when handled properly, building code violations and their underlying issues can always be resolved, which is where we come in.


When a property manager first receives a building violation, typically the first thing they do is panic! Hoping for quick resolution, the manager will do an online search or ask colleagues how to proceed.

Search for help

Usually, an attorney will be called in first. Next, the contractor and/or architect. But with no prior knowledge of any of these folks or how they will work together, the property manager is basically flying blind and taking a chance of failing inspection.

Manage the process

The property manager now has to try to manage the team.  Instructions will be given. Permits will be pulled. Plans will be made. Work may or may not be completed. The property manager spends countless hours over several months communicating with each player, but if their efforts aren’t coordinated — it may all be a huge waste of time and money.
