The amount of time you will be allowed to correct the violations depends on how serious the violations are, and you should go by the deadlines on your consent order, stipulation, or order to correct. Generally, for violations found to be immediately hazardous such as lead based paint or lack of heat, hot water, electricity, or gas, you must correct within 24 hours. For hazardous violations, such as inadequate lighting in public areas, you must correct within 30 days. For non hazardous violations such minor leaks or chipping or peeling paint when no children under the age of six live in the home, you must correct within 90 days. The time period by which you have to correct the violations starts from the date you receive the court order.
