Annual Rental Facility Occupancy Survey

Montgomery County Code 29-51 requires all landlords of rental housing units to participate in the Annual Rental Facility Occupancy Survey conducted by the Department of Housing and Community Affairs. The survey is conducted from April 1-30 each year and tracks vacancies, turnover rates, average rents, and amenities. Facilities located within Montgomery County's unincorporated areas as well as the municipalities of Rockville, Gaithersburg and Takoma Park participate in the survey. Vacancy and turnover rates are presented countywide and by market area.

To access the Rental Survey, landlords must register with AccessMCG, then go to the Licensing and Registration Program to login to their License Record. Once in the license records, complete BOTH SECTIONS of the Rental Survey Tabs (1) Survey, Facility and (2) Survey, Units. On the Survey, Units tab, enter the number of bedrooms, occupancy and rent data for ALL units in the facility.

Landlords without internet access can go to a public library to complete the survey or utilize a computer in the DHCA reception area. To request assistance in completing the survey, please call 240.777.0311.

Landlords who do not comply with the annual rental survey may be subject to a civil citation and/or fine.
