Who do I contact if a see a dilapidated house that needs to be torn down?

The demolition process starts with a call to the Code Compliance Manager at (903) 465-2720 Ext:2457. They will then determine that the structure is dilapidated and posts the house unsafe.

The location of the house determines what funds will be used to demolish the structure. The length of time from posting to demolition varies greatly due to a number of circumstances. The most time consuming task is to contact all of the people who might have an ownership in the property and have them sign a release to demolish the house. This task alone can take up to six months or more.
