Violations

What the "Violations" data type includes

  • type of violation
  • description of the violation
  • date when the violation was discovered
  • deadline to resolve the violation
  • fine amount
  • participants involved in the violation (property owner, tenant, inspection authorities, and others)
  • and more…

Historical data

Donuka collects, stores, and displays not only current but also historical data collected over the past 10 years or more.

As a result, our users are able to track the history of violations and any changes related to a specific real estate property.

Data sources

Donuka strives to provide credible information obtained from reliable sources. That’s why we only collect and process data from the following sources:

  • city administrations
  • district administrations
  • state administrations
  • federal agencies
  • and others like them…

In all, we collect data on real estate violations from over 2,000 different government sources.

Data update frequency

Registries on violations are maintained by city, county, state, and federal agencies. These add up to thousands of different registries and, respectively, thousands of different data sources, all operating independently of each other.

Each city, county, or state administration decides for itself how often to update and publish information. Some make changes and publish updated data several times a day, some daily, some weekly, and some just once a year.

Within 1-2 days of the publication of data in a city, county, or state administration’s database, Donuka updates the data in its own database, and it then becomes available to our users.

Searching for real estate by violation

Donuka allows you to perform a detailed search for real estate using 10+ parameters related to violations.

In just a minute, you can sift through 100 million+ properties to find only the ones that are right for you.

Here’s an example of a search query using violation parameters:

  • date when the violation was discovered: <7 days
  • deadline to resolve the violation: <30 days
  • fine amount: >500 USD

In your search results, you will instantly receive a list of properties that match all of the above search parameters. You can also use search options for other types of data to get the most accurate results.

Tracking changes in violations

Donuka allows you to create tasks that track changes in existing properties and alert you to new properties that meet the values you specify.

Here’s an example of tracking violations for an existing property:

  • new violation: yes
  • type of violation: illegal construction

You’ll receive an instant notification by email and on your dashboard if a property you’re tracking has a new violation.

Here’s an example of tracking violations for new properties (or existing properties with characteristics that correspond to your specified values):

  • date when the violation was discovered: <3 days
  • deadline to resolve the violation: <90 days
  • type of violation: illegal construction

You’ll receive an instant notification by email and on your dashboard with a list of properties that have violation records matching your specified values.
