This Unit, led by Mickey Lomax, Housing Program Manager, has two distinct responsibilities. First, we enforce the minimum livability code for County residential rental properties to ensure our County residents live in homes which are safe and healthy. Secondly, we work with qualifying low-income residential property owners to rehabilitate homes and to alleviate health and safety hazards.
Enforcing the Housing Code for Renters
Mickey Lomax is the rental housing code inspector for Queen Anne's County. He is responsible for enforcing Chapter 15 of the Code of Queen Anne's County, Maryland in all areas of the County other than some incorporated towns who are governed by their own housing code. If you believe that the health, safety and or welfare of your rental unit is in jeopardy you may contact Mr. Lomax for guidance at 410-758-3977, extension 2063 or by email.
The purpose of the County's Housing Rehabilitation Program is to preserve and improve single family properties. Homeowners who have health and safety hazards may be eligible for loans to improve their home. Eligible homeowners may qualify for funding to correct exterior and interior deficiencies, make accessibility modifications, correct health and safety violations, improve weatherization, energy conservation and correct lead-based paint violations. Some general improvements may also be eligible for financing after renovation of the priority items listed above. Luxury items such as swimming pools and recreational facilities are not eligible for financing. For more information contact Mickey Lomax at 410-758-3977, extension 2063 or by email.
