Random rental housing inspections throughout the city began in January 2006. Landlords are contacted in advance and advised to notify their tenants of the scheduled inspection date. A thorough dwelling unit inspection is conducted utilizing the Housing Code. The landlord is notified of any violations and given time (depending on severity) to correct them.
Effective February 21, 2012, an amendment to Chapter 117, "Landlord Permits", requires lease agreements for all new and renewing applicants. For more information and to download a Landlord Permit application, please see Landlord Permits.
