Rental Housing Licensing Inspections

Rental Housing Licensing Inspections

All of the criteria for both the Baseline and Renewal inspections is available in the Rental License Handbook.

A Baseline Inspection is required to:

  • license a new rental property;
  • renew a license after the previous license has expired; or
  • renew a license when ownership has changed during the four-year licensing period.

A Renewal Inspection is required to:

  • renew a license that has not expired for a property that has not had a change of ownership during the four-year licensing period.
