What happens after I submit my rental license application and fee?
After a rental license application and fee is submitted, the City will contact the property owner, or the designated person responsible for the building's maintenance, to arrange an initial inspection of the rental property. Once the inspection has been made, and if no violations are found, the City will issue the rental license.

If violations are found, the property owner or designee will receive a detailed inspection report highlighting the code violations. The letter will also indicate a time frame for the items to be remedied or repaired. The property owner or designee must correct the violations and schedule a re-inspection of the rental property within the time frame specified. Once all violations are properly corrected, the City will issue the rental dwelling license.
