The rental licensing program is part of the City's code compliance program. It exists to provide safe living conditions for renters, strengthen residential neighborhoods and provide a well-maintained community for everyone.

The program requires owners to obtain and maintain a valid rental license and pass an exterior inspection of each rental property. The $60 per building fee funds licensing, inspection and code compliance for rental properties. Rental licenses will be good for two years.

Beginning January 2017, the City will notify owners of one- and two-family dwellings appearing to be rental properties seeking verification they are indeed renting the property. Owners who reside within their homes should notify the City they are not renting the dwelling. Landlords may submit an application for a rental license two months prior to the inspection of the rental property.

Licensing and inspection will be phased in over a two year period, on a month-by-month basis:

  • First inspection cycle: July 2017-May 2018
  • Second inspection cycle: July 2018-May 2019
  • Cycle restarts: July 2019

Please refer to the map to see when a specific property is scheduled for inspection.
