Housing Livability & Rehabilitation

This Unit, led by Denise Weiland, Housing PIC for website rehab 1Program 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

Denise Weiland is the rental housing code inspector for Queen Anne's County.  She 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 Ms. Weiland for guidance at 410-758-3977, extension 2066 or by email.

Housing Rehabilitation

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 Denise Weiland at 410-758-3977, extension 2066 or by email.
