Rental

The city of New Hope requires regular inspections for all rental properties within the city. The purpose of these inspections is to help maintain the quality of the rental housing stock in the city and protect the city’s neighborhoods. The Rental Inspection Overview lists items that must be in compliance at the time of a rental inspection.

Small Rental Properties (Single-family homes, condos & duplexes)

Once every two years, the city will contact small rental property owners by mail to schedule an inspection. Property owners are responsible for contacting all tenants to notify them of the inspection. At the time of inspection, the city inspector may identify required corrections or repairs. The owner must complete the required corrections and contact the city for a follow-up inspection within 15 days of the initial inspection.

Multifamily Properties (3+ units)

Approximately every three years, the city will contact multifamily rental property owners by mail to schedule an inspection. Property owners are responsible for contacting all tenants to notify them of the inspection. At the time of inspection, the city inspector may identify required corrections or repairs. The owner must complete the required corrections within 15 days of the initial inspection. For information on the rental registration program, visit the city's Rental page.
