In accordance with a Crime-Free Housing Program Ordinance 2019-14, any property not occupied by legal owner is considered a rental dwelling and requires a Residential Rental License. Upon request, a copy of the Crime-Free Program Ordinance can be provided.
It is your responsibility to read through both the Ordinance and Checklist. Should you have any questions please see the Building Department Clerk.
You must comply with all violations to rent your home within 90 days of inspection. Once repairs have been completed you will need to call the Building Department to schedule a final inspection. If final inspection receives a “Pass” on all violations, the village will issue a Compliance Permit.
The owner/landlord must sign an affidavit stating that he or she will watch a Crime-Free video (a link will be provided) and payment for the Residential Rental License. It is the owner’s responsibility to watch the seminar.
The license year is May 1st to April 30th and must be renewed unless the owner sells property. An annual health and safety inspection is required.
