Process to License a Rental Unit

The Licensing and Registration unit of the Department of Housing and Community Affairs performs activities related to licensing rental units. The process includes completion of a Rental Facility License Application and payment of an annual license fee. It takes approximately 10 business days to process a rental license application once the completed application, payment and supporting documents are received. Once a property owner is licensed, the Department automatically generates a renewal notice each year. The license fee year runs from each July 1st through the following June 30th. The online application and additional information can be found at the link below.
