Residential Property Registration

All owners of residential rental property within the city must register each rental property unit owned or operated within the city. 

An owner of residential rental property must file a registration application with the Community Development Department within 30 days after assuming ownership or control of the property, or after altering the number or size of rental units at a previously registered property.

All property owners must have valid and current certificates of registration for each of their units and all residential rental units must be inspected periodically by the Community Development Department for compliance. 

All residential rental units must also be in compliance with the property maintenance code.
