​​​​​​​The Consumer Affairs Division recei​ves, processes and investigates consumer complaints, mediates disputes between consumers and businesses/landlords, identifies violations of the law by business operators and issues civil citations.

Depending upon the circumstance, Investigators will do one or more of the following:

  • Determine if a law or ordinance has been violated and take the appropriate enforcement action.

  • Contact the business to determine their position and attempt to negotiate a compromise between the parties.

  • Refer the complaint to the agency with direct regulatory authority for additional assistance.

  • Recommend consulting an attorney regarding possibly taking legal action.​

IMPORTANT: Before proceeding to file your dispute, please ensure you review the following information:
           Helpful Information for Filing Consumer Disputes 


Any consumer may make or file a complaint/dispute stating the name and address (if known) of the Business or Landlord alleged to have committed the violation complained of and the particulars thereof, and such other information as may be required by the Consumer Affairs Division.​​
