Mayor Brand Announces the Launch of the City of Fresno’s Rental Housing Registry

Mayor Lee Brand announced the launch of the City of Fresno’s Rental Housing Registry at a press conference this morning at City Hall. The registry is the first step of the Rental Housing Improvement Act, which gives property owners and managers the ability to register their rental properties online.

The purpose of the registry is to create an easy-to-use site that property owners can use to register the over 90,000 rental units in the City of Fresno. The goal is to work with property owners to achieve compliance with health and safety code violations and improve the quality of Fresno’s rental housing stock.

“This is a significant step forward in the effort to improve Fresno’s housing stock through the Rental Housing Improvement Act,” said Mayor Brand. “By proactively identifying substandard housing violations and ensuring rental housing meets minimum health and safety standards, we will collectively safeguard, and improve the housing stock of decent, safe and sanitary residential rental units within our community.”

All residential rental properties are required to be registered and the registration updated whenever there is a change of ownership or contact information. Registration is due no later than 30 days from receiving initial notice. There are no fees to register a rental property; however, failure to register will result in penalties which will be mailed in the near future.

The Rental Registry can be found online at www.fresno.gov/rentalhousing.
