Rental Licensing

The City of Roseville has been exploring ways to maintain the safety, livability and property values of our neighborhoods through more effective code enforcement.

To achieve these goals, the City Council passed an ordinance requiring rental licensing of Multi-family Rental Dwellings (MRD). Rental Licensing includes inspections of rental units and common areas. The Rental License Program assures that MRDs with 5 or more units in Roseville are safe, sanitary and well maintained throughout our community.

Beginning in 2018 the program will include a yearly inspection by the Roseville Fire Department.This will help limit inspections and keep our Multi Family rental properties safe.

The largest change for the program will be that these inspections will now be annual, but will include your annual Fire Inspection as well. Also, the “grading scale” has been eliminated and inspections will purely be a “pass/fail” evaluation.

During 2018 the Fire Department will NOT include any inspections of individual units, and all fees for the inspection will be waived. We will be in contact with you in mid-2018 about fees for the following year and any changes to the inspection process.

With these changes we strive to make this program and any inspection process as easy as possible.
Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. If you have questions or concerns regarding the Rental License Program please contact us at any time.

Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to working with you.
