Rental Property Licenses

Every rental property must be registered with the City.  This one-time registration of both vacant and inhabited units will give City officials a better understanding of the housing stock.  Every rental unit that is or will be inhabited must receive an occupancy license.

The current Rental Housing Ordinance allows Lancaster City Housing Inspectors and City Police Officers to better enforce property maintenance and disruptive conduct in rental properties throughout the City.
