Denver Inspectors Can Take Advantage of Free, In-Person Support for the Residential Rental Property Permit

Free in-person application support session later this month

As of Jan. 1, it is the law in Denver for any property with more than one unit offered for rent for 30 days or more to have applied for or received a residential rental license. Single units have until Jan. 1, 2024, to apply for a license. The licensing program is part of Denver’s drive to achieve minimum residential rental housing standards.

With the deadline fast approaching for single units to have a license and as part of the City and County of Denver’s ongoing outreach efforts, there will be a third free in-person question-and-answer session about the program as well as application support on Tuesday, Sept. 19 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Sam Gary Branch Library (2961 Roslyn St.).

The event will start with a 40-minute overview presentation of the residential rental property licensing program and a general question-and-answer session. A signup sheet will be available for one-on-one help from Excise and Licenses staff after the presentation. Depending on the volume who sign up, wait times could be substantial.

Be sure to review the inspector checklist, inspector list and application requirements for general information. There is also a substantial frequently asked questions section on our website.

Computers will be available for public use to apply for the license during the session. There also will be Spanish- and Mandarin-speaking staff members available to help.

Share this message with any rental property owners/managers and encourage them to sign up for the residential rental property informational bulletin to receive news and updates about the program as they become available. Previous updates sent in informational bulletins are available on our website.
