In any case where the Housing Inspector determines that a dwelling fails to fully comply with one or more, but less than seven of enumerated standards of dwelling fitness in §§ 153.25 through 153.33 of this chapter, such dwelling shall not be found to be unfit for human habitation and shall not be subject to the procedures and remedies as provided for in this chapter for dwellings unfit for human habitation. Each such failure of non-compliance, however, shall constitute a violation of the terms of this chapter and shall subject the violator to the penalties and enforcement procedures, civil or criminal or both, of § 10.99 of this code of ordinances, in making the determination as described in this section, the Housing Inspector shall not be required to make notice and hold the hearing as called for in § 153.06 of this chapter, but the Housing Inspector may do so if the determination of the severity and classification of dwelling fitness is not clear to the Housing Inspector upon preliminary investigation.
