This important program is designed to ensure that rental housing meets certain minimum standards. It applies to all structures located within the City.

All rental units are required to be registered and inspected by a housing inspector approved by City Council, on a regular basis to ensure compliance with this Code.

Regular inspections of rental dwelling units are required:

  • Every three (3) years for multiple-family units
  • Every five (5) years for unattached single-family units
  • Every five (5) years for duplexes
