What does the Denver Rental Housing Licensing mean for our Colorado Realty and Property Management, Inc. landlords?
On May 3, 2021, the Denver City Council passed a new ordinance requiring a Residential Rental Property license for any person to offer, provide, or operate a residential rental property in the City and County of Denver. This program is designed to proactively enforce minimum housing standards to ensure all renters in Denver have safe and sanitary housing. The program requires landlords in Denver to obtain a license from the city in order to offer, provide, and operate a residential rental property. Here are some of the facts:
- Multi-family buildings will need their licenses by 2023 and single family homes will need it by 2024.
- Licenses will last for 4 years.
- Inspection costs are $195 and Denver charges $50 for the licensing form.
- Colorado Realty and Property Management is ahead of the game and will be working closely with all Denver property landlords to handle this before the deadlines.
Here are a few of the important requirements that will be inspected for our Colorado Realty and Property Management, Inc. Rental Properties:
- If it is an underground unit, some form of Egress is required
- Plumbing fixtures in proper order
- Electrical is in appropriate order
- Smoke and CO detectors working and to code
- Furnace room safety measures
- This message is for our Colorado Realty and Property Management, Inc. Landlord Clients
Starting Jan 1, 2024, a license will be required for any person to offer, provide, or operate a residential rental property consisting of a single rental dwelling unit on a single parcel. For example, this would require a license for a single-family home for rent or a triplex where one unit is for rent.
