Rental Registration & Inspection Program (City of Aurora)

Effective May 1st, 2017, owners of property containing multi-family, rental housing with TWO UNITS OR MORE must be registered with the City of Aurora. Registration includes basic information about property, units, owner contact information, and a $5 registration fee.

Rental Registration & Inspection Process:

  1. All property owners of property containing multi-family, rental housing with TWO UNITS OR MORE must complete a registration form (*please click here or see below) and submit a $5 payment per property to the City of Aurora, to the Clerk-Treasurer's Office (c/o Rental Registration Program).
  2. All multi-family, rental housing units that qualify for the Rental Registration & Inspection Program will be inspected at least once every 5 years. Once the initial rental registration process has taken place and the City's rental units are inventoried, the City's Inspection Officer(s) will work with City Officials to coordinate and begin contacting property owners (this Fall) to have them complete the Rental Housing Unit Inspection Guide & Application--well in advance of a planned inspection.
  3. Once the Rental Housing Unit Inspection Guide & Application has been completed and the corresponding fees ($125 per property plus $25 per dwelling unit on the property) have been paid for a property to the City of Aurora, to the Clerk-Treasurer's Office, an Inspection Officer will schedule an inspection and provide at least 72 hours of notice.
  4. All properties with multi-family, rental housing with TWO UNITS OR MORE will be inspected in coordination with the Rental Housing Inspection Guide, and the City of Aurora's Rental Registration & Inspection Program Ordinance (#2017-001). An inspection certificate will be issued upon a satisfactory inspection.
  5. Inspection certificates are valid for 5 years. However, the City may inspect rental units in this program in less than 5 years if: a) the City receives a formal, written complaint (that is subsequently verified); or b) the City has reason to believe--as a result of emergency, police, or fire response and / or a complaint(s) received by another agency related to the general health, safety, and general welfare associated with the unit--that the unit does not comply with applicable code requirements.
