Some properties with six or fewer dwelling units are exempt from rental registration. To find out if your property qualifies for a rental housing exemption, review the Rental Registration Exemption Affidavit. If any of the conditions apply, complete an application for exemption as outlined below. Short-term Rentals are not eligible for an exemption.

If your rental unit does not qualify for exemption, you must register your rental housing instead.
