The City requires the annual registration of certain dwelling units each year.
Registration is required for all dwelling units that are:
(1) located either within a single family residential structure, or within a multiple-family residential structure and having a unique method of ingress and egress between the Dwelling Unit and an adjacent right-of-way or parking area; and
(2) leased to, or occupied by, any person other than an Owner thereof regardless of the length of the lease period.
If your dwelling meets these two tests it is considered a Regulated Rental Unit.
Owners of Regulated Rental Units are required to register their units with the City by April 1 each year regardless of the duration of the lease; owners must register a Regulated Rental Unit before renting it (including renting a Regulated Rental Unit as a Short-Term Rental) and thereafter, on or before April 1 each calendar year that the unit is rented. This information assists the City in its delivery of code enforcement and emergency services.
Renewal notices have been mailed to those who registered a Regulated Rental Unit last year.
Instructions regarding rental registrations are available online. An FAQ is available here.
