Rental Dwelling Licensing

The operation of residential rental properties is considered a business enterprise that gives rise to certain responsibilities.  Per city ordinance, every rental dwelling, including single-family rental dwellings, must be licensed.  All licenses must be renewed and inspected annually.

It is the purpose of the city’s rental dwelling licensing program to help ensure that Elk River’s residential communities are safe, secure, and sanitary; free from crimes and criminal activity, noise, nuisances or annoyances; and free from reasonable fears about safety of persons and security of property.  The city is committed to ensuring that homes do not become nuisances or blight to the neighborhood and do not create a disincentive to invest in the community.
