Rental housing property owners are required to obtain an annual City rental license. Rental housing licensing is regulated by the provisions of Section 714 Rental Licensing. The licensing requirements pertain to all rental housing, including non-owner occupied single-family detached, single-family attached and multi-family housing units. The intent of the rental housing licensing program is to ensure that rental housing units are maintained in accordance with the City's regulations and will not become a nuisance or negatively influence a neighborhood.

Applications will be reviewed and licenses issued if the dwelling unit complies with City regulations and municipal utility bills and real estate taxes are paid in full.

  If you are currently licensed and wish to void the license due to owner-occupancy please fill out the Affidavit Form below and return it to City Hall.  

The City regulations that require compliance are both interior and exterior.  A full list of the requirements and what we look for are listed under the Rental Property Maintenance Standards page.  

If you are a renter whose unit is being foreclosed upon there are options and resources available to help you.  More information can be found at Foreclosure Resources.
